Special Needs Accommodations

Important Commencement 2014 update:
We've outgrown the University Green:
A new Commencement tradition begins

Until just a few days ago, the Rowan University community expected to celebrate the 89th Commencement with both Graduate and Undergraduate ceremonies on the University Green at Bunce Hall. But with higher-than-ever numbers of students due to participate in Commencement, we anticipate hosting more than 20,000 students and guests during the course of our two days of ceremonies. The University Green is simply too small to accommodate everyone safely and comfortably. Fortunately, Wackar Stadium can accommodate 13,000 students and guests. Please join us for:

Graduate Commencement - Thursday, May 15, at 10 a.m. at Wackar Stadium

Undergraduate Commencement - Friday, May 16, at 10 a.m. at Wackar Stadium

We apologize for the late notice on the venue change. We struggled with the decision after years of tradition on the Green. The deciding factor was, however, our students and their guests. The academic milestones we celebrate at Commencement should be shared with as many loved ones and friends as possible.

We look forward to establishing new traditions with this year's Commencement and making the days memorable for graduates, guests and the entire Rowan community.

Changes to note:

  • Venue changed from University Green to Wackar Stadium.
  • Graduate Commencement
    • Special needs seating for the main ceremony requires tickets, limited to individuals with disabilities and one companion. These tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at rowancommencement.universitytickets.com.
  • Undergraduate Commencement
    • Special needs seating for the main ceremony requires tickets, limited to individuals with disabilities and one companion. These tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at rowancommencement.universitytickets.com. Undergraduate Commencement special needs tickets count as main ceremony tickets. If a student reserves special needs tickets for main ceremony guests, these will be subtracted from the total number of main ceremony tickets available per student.
