Arrival and parking
Tickets are required for everyone who attends spring commencement. A pre-ceremony video will begin 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. We strongly encourage everyone to arrive and be in their seats 15 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony.
Graduates should arrive with their guests and report to the entry gate designated on their ticket. In order to receive your diploma, you must enter through your assigned gate. Graduates will receive their diploma after they have entered the stadium and on the way to their seats.
Parking is available at no charge. Parking locations are open to you and your guests on commencement day on a first-come, first-served basis. No Ohio State parking permit is required.
Disability parking is available in the East Stadium lot on a first-come, first-served basis. A permanent or temporary Ohio or other state-issued disability placard is required. Enter the East Stadium lot from Tuttle Park Place. Please plan to arrive early as reserved parking is not guaranteed.
Graduates will be seated with their guests in a pod of three seats. Those in attendance should remain seated in their assigned seating pod for the duration of the ceremony. Pods are distanced 6 feet apart in accordance with state and local guidelines.
There will be two ceremonies on Sunday, May 9, 2021.
