Georgia Southwestern State University
welcomes the friends and families of our Spring 2020 and Summer 2020 graduates to

August 2020 Commencement

Saturday, August 15, 2020
11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the Storm Dome

Seating for graduation is open with no tickets needed, but Convocation Hall will fill quickly. We recommend family arrive early for the best seats. Late entry is not allowed as it will disrupt the procession of students and faculty. Late-comers and overflow guests will be directed to a room where they can watch the ceremony streaming live, but they cannot enter the Convocation Hall after five minutes prior to the ceremony or after it has filled to capacity. Remember that there will be lots of people on campus. Guests will need to allow time to park and walk to the Convocation Hall, so plan accordingly. It is the one day of the year you can expect a traffic jam in Americus!

While we welcome well-deserved applause, loud cheers and noisemakers are not appropriate. These disruptions often drowned out the names of other graduates walking across the stage and prolong the ceremony. Every GSW graduate deserves to hear his or her name read as that prized degree is awarded. Please know that loud cheers and noisemakers are not allowed and anyone disrupting the ceremony may be asked to leave. We promise, after every student has crossed the stage, we will all cheer!

Where should I park?
