Baccalaureate Details

Baccalaureate services will be held in Christ Chapel on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Go to to reserve complimentary tickets for a Baccalaureate Service.

Seating in Christ Chapel is limited, so there are two opportunities to attend the Baccalaureate Service to accomodate requests. Requests will be filled as received until a service reaches capacity. Guest tickets are not limited, although please order as close as possible to the number of tickets needed. Additional requests for tickets or returns can be made if your plans change.

Attending the 9 a.m. service allows for a more leisurely time to attend the Commencement Buffet before graduates are required to line-up for Commencement at 12:45 p.m.
