USC 130th Annual Commencement
Friday, May 17, 2013
USC’s commencement consists of one main ceremony for all degree candidates and their families, followed by smaller ceremonies for individual schools and programs throughout the day. Students are officially designated graduates of the university at the first (or main) ceremony, but they do not march across a stage, receive a diploma cover, and take a photo until they attend their school’s satellite ceremony. There is no registration required for students to march in the main ceremony, and guest seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that at the main ceremony each guest may only hold or reserve two additional seats. Some satellite ceremonies require tickets for guests, and that information will be noted on this website.
Guests should plan on arriving on campus by 7:00 a.m. to secure parking (which is free), and to find a seat in or around Alumni Park. Please note, guests will be allowed to save no more than an additional two seats each. Ceremony programs will be available for guests at tented information booths on campus; programs will be pre-set on graduates’ seats.
