Special Needs

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis to accommodate guests with wheelchairs, walkers, oxygen and visual impairments, etc.

We cannot guarantee reserved seating. It is highly recommended that guests arrive early to ensure the seating of their choice. The aisle seat in every other row will have a space to accommodate a wheelchair.

There will be a reserved area for guests using interpreter services. If you need special seating arrangements for deaf or hard of hearing guests, please contact Florence Cooney at 443-840-4369 by Tuesday, May 30 so an adequate number of seats may be reserved.

If you do not notify us in advance, we cannot guarantee adequate seating.

There is a drop-off area near the graduation tent for those guests with limited mobility, and a designated parking area for cars with valid state "handicap" tags or placards. Guests must provide their own wheelchairs.

Note: There will be a live broadcast of the commencement ceremony in the Wellness and Athletics Center, with indoor seating to view the graduation. This may be a good option for elderly guests and guests with mobility issues, for whom walking to the ceremony tent may be challenging.
