Graduation Information

Class of 2018 Parents: Congratulations. It's Graduation time!

Seniors will receive their parking pass at graduation rehearsal on Friday, May 25, 2018. Please note this pass is only for the graduate and cannot be used by family or guests unless they are in the same vehicle as the graduate. Please make sure your senior is aware they need to be in the McGehee Auditorium for rehearsal by 7:30 a.m. on Friday, May 25.

On graduation day, golf carts will be available from the Bolles parking lots to the River Campus graduation site. If rain is indicated the morning of graduation, extra parking will be available at The Shops at San Jose Shopping Plaza, 2777 University Blvd., W. (behind Publix). Bus transportation to and from this location will be provided from 7 a.m. – noon. In the event of rain, seniors will be given a limited number of rain tickets for entrance into Davis Gym for parents and a few others. Let's hope we don't need to be indoors!

Parking will be provided closest to the graduation site for handicapped guests for those who present a state-issued permit. If you have special needs, a designated wheelchair/handicap seating area is available.

All seating will open at 7:30 a.m. (one hour prior to the start of the processional). We cannot allow saving seats for guests not yet present. We will again offer remote simulcast in the air-conditioned McGehee Auditorium. In addition, for those with relatives and friends who cannot attend, graduation is also streamed live at

On Saturday, May 26, 2018 Bolles will recognize each 2018 graduate. We ask your help to ensure that your graduate follows the guidelines regarding graduation attire. (Please refer to the dress code guidelines here.) All seniors need to be in the Verlander Dining Hall by 7:15 a.m. on the big day.
