Graduation update - commencement moved to Monday night

After carefully monitoring the weather forecast and consulting with multiple local meteorologists, we have decided to move the commencement ceremony for the Class of 2024 to tomorrow night (Monday) at 7 pm at Dr. Paul Hill Jr. Stadium. In addition to the potential of rain, there is a threat of thunderstorms in the area this afternoon, and the safety of students, families, and staff remains our highest priority. 

Holding the event in our stadium tomorrow evening also allows more family and friends to celebrate with our graduates.

General admission tickets are not needed for this outdoor event, however, if your student exchanged general admission tickets for accessible seating tickets, guests should bring their accessible seating tickets for access to these seats.

You may also watch the ceremonies via our live stream on TA’s YouTube page.

Congratulations to the Class of 2024!

Please note that we are monitoring the weather forecast for Monday night. If inclement weather is expected, the ceremony will be moved indoors to Linnell Gymnasium. That decision will be made by 2 pm tomorrow. If the ceremony is moved indoors, tickets will be required, due to the limited seating.
