Fall 2013 Commencement Information
December 13, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.
Graduates must check-in at Howard Auditorium between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
*Do not leave any personal belongings in the Auditorium. The Auditorium will be locked during the ceremony and no access will be available after the ceremony. The College will not be responsible for lost items.
Guests should have tickets in hand when they arrive at Gressette for the ceremony. Seating is not assigned by ticket, and is on a first come first serve basis. Please remember that even if you have a ticket, anyone that arrives after the graduates have entered the gym will not be admitted. So arrive early and find a seat.
Due to growing numbers of graduates and guests, we have out grown Gressette Gymnasium and thus the ability to meet and remain compliant with the fire code. In order to accommodate these growing numbers, students participating in graduation will be eligible for up to 8 tickets for guest admission to the commencement ceremony. This will also ensure that each graduate’s family and friends will have equal opportunity to attend this important ceremony. If you do not need all 8 tickets please be considerate of the other graduates and do not take all 8 tickets.
*children 3 years old and under will not need a ticket
Tickets can be picked up in the ABAC Bookstore until December 12. The Bookstore is open Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 pm. and Friday 8:00 a.m.-3 p.m.
***MUST have indicated you are participating in the Commencement Ceremony and present your ABAC Gold Card to pick-up tickets***

Extra tickets will be available on a first come first serve basis on December 13 at 4:30 p.m. The tickets will be available at the Gressette Gym ticket window (front entrance facing Davis Road).
