Commencement 2020 Inclement Weather Plan- Gloucester Campus 

If there is inclement weather on May 14, the Gloucester Commencement will be moved to May 15 at 11:00am. If there is still inclement weather on May 15, the Commencement ceremony will be split into two ceremonies and they will be held in the Physical Education Center Gymnasium. The split ceremonies will be held at 11:00am and 4:00pm and will be sorted by academic division. Student arrival times and lineup locations will be announced at the Grad Breakfast. It is very important that you check the webpage for updates.
Each student will be given two rain tickets when they pick up their cap and gown to be used if the event is moved indoors due to inclement weather. Admission to the gymnasium will be by RAIN ticket only, due to limited seating capacity — two tickets per graduate. When the gymnasium has reached its capacity, your guests may be diverted, for their own safety, to an alternate viewing area on RCSJ Gloucester’s campus.​
