Day of Details for Graduates


  • Please print your GradPass on white standard letter-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches) and bring it to your ceremony.
  • Take care not to damage your GradPass since the QR code will be used to display your name and degree information on the big screens.
  • Keep your GradPass with you at all times. Don’t lose it or leave it at your seat when you walk to the stage.

Student Line-up

  • Plan to arrive to Hutton Gym for student line-up in your cap and gown 30 minutes before your ceremony’s start time.
  • With your printed GradPass, proceed directly to the line-up area in Hutton Gym.
  • The line-up area is not secure. Leave any personal items you do not want to carry throughout the ceremony in your car or with a guest.
  • Please allow plenty of time for parking and to familiarize your guests with Chapman’s campus. No guests will be allowed in the line-up area.
