What to do on Graduation Day

All graduates need to be at the Jack Stephens Center at least one hour before their ceremony begins.

  • Once you arrive, you will report to Derek Fisher Court on the first level of the Jack Stephens Center. Signage around the building will direct you toward Fisher Court.
  • Staff will be available to answer questions and line up students upon arrival to the Fisher Court. A marshal will be present to assist graduates with questions, academic regalia and the initial sign-in process, as needed.
  • Please be sure to sign in and obtain a name card. Name card information will assist ceremony announcers in the preferred pronunciation of your name, as you cross the stage.
  • The bookstore will have a merchandise table if you forget any of your regalia. Please note that the usual costs/fees are applicable. Full academic regalia is required to participate in the ceremony.
  • Photographers will be stationed in Fisher Court to take photos that can be added to your (option to purchase) commencement photo package.
  • Guests are not permitted in Fisher Court. This area is reserved for graduating students only. Food and drinks are not allowed in Fisher Court.
  • Please do not bring valuables (purses, extra clothing/shoes, etc.) into Fisher Court. There is no place to secure these items and there will be no one to watch them.
  • UA Little Rock is a smoke-free campus. Smoking is not permitted in or around the Jack Stephens Center.
