Special Needs Information
December 2016 Commencement Ceremony
Graduates with Special Needs
Any graduate participating in the ceremony who will need special accommodations, please contact the Academic Affairs Office at 970.248.1443 prior to November 15.
Special Parking/Drop-off for guests with physical limitations or disabilities
Handicap parking and drop-off will be available in front of the Maverick Center. Drivers are encouraged to drop off passengers at the Maverick Center and then find a place to park. Drivers may return to the drop off area for pick up after the ceremony. On commencement day, all Colorado Mesa University parking lots are available to graduates and guests free of charge without a parking pass. Be aware it will be unlikely to park in front of the Maverick Center due to the limited amount of spaces, handicap parking, and traffic flow in that area. In addition to the CMU lots, parking will also be available at Lincoln Park.
Seating for Guests with Disabilities
Special seating will be available for those with disabilities on a first-come, first-served basis.
