Faith and Family Floor Plan

Family and friends may arrive an hour before each ceremony. Seating is limited and tickets are required for entry to the ceremony. The number of tickets that will be provided to student for their guests has not been determined and will be posted at a later date. Spring graduates have the option of attending the commencement ceremony in May, or postpone participation until the December ceremony held in Katy, TX. If your plans change and you will not be able to attend the ceremony in Victoria, please let us know even if it is last minute. You may leave a message at 361-485-4474 for 877-970-4848 ext. 4474.

On the day of the ceremony, please arrive not later than one hour before the scheduled time of your ceremony for check-in. You can park anywhere outside of the venue. When you check-in, you will be given a colored index card with your name printed on it. DO NOT LOSE THIS CARD. This is how the announcer will pronounce your name as you walk across the stage. Once you’ve checked in, you will proceed into the facility where you will receive robing and marching instructions. Only graduates will be allowed in this area of the facility.

Students graduating with honors will be recognized at the commencement ceremony. Graduation with honors is reserved for undergraduate students only. Final grades for the Spring 2015 term will not be available for the commencement ceremony, so honor candidates are identified by the grades earned through their next to last semester of coursework. Please direct questions regarding honors to The Office of Registrar & Student Records at
