For Commencement Day

  • Arrival Time

    We recommend guests to arrive when the gates open — 1.5 hours before the ceremony start time — to find and claim their seats. While tickets allow guests access into the venue, all seating is on a first come, first ushered basis. In other words, saving seats is not permitted.

  • Ceremony Information

    The commencement ceremony will last between 1.5–2 hours. Every graduate's name will be read during the presentation of degrees. Please refer to the schedule of ceremonies and events for more details.

  • Live Feed

    A live feed of the ceremonies will be available from the Biola commencement website and on Biola’s Facebook page.

  • Live Captions

    For those attending in person, closed captions are available from your device.
