You are not required to purchase regalia for the in-person ceremonies this semester.
All Individuals with a ticket and attending Commencement at Center Parc Stadium are required to wear an approved personal face covering at all times while within the stadium perimeter (inside the Olympic Gates off Georgia Ave., as well as the stadium perimeter which includes security queues at all stadium entrances, as well as queues at ticket and will call windows).
Approved face coverings must 1) be made with at least two layers of breathable material, 2) fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin, 3) fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face and 4) be secured to allow the guest to not have to keep the covering in place with his/her hands. Based on guidance from health officials, open-chin triangle bandanas and/or face coverings containing valves, mesh material and or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings. Additionally, costume masks are also not considered appropriate face coverings and are prohibited from being worn inside Center Parc Stadium.
