Guests with Special Needs

For an outdoor ceremony, a limited number of special-seating tickets for those who have difficulty walking or need wheelchair access are available by contacting the Office of Conferences and Special Events at 717-245-1900 prior to Wednesday, May 15. For an indoor ceremony, students must exchange their general seating tickets for special-seating tickets during the indoor ceremony ticket distribution time period. Severe Weather Plan & Indoor Ticketing Policy. We regret that because of limited space, we can only accommodate one companion to the individual needing special seating. 

The college provides the services of a sign language interpreter for both ceremonies. Individuals with impaired hearing who need to be able to see the signer should request special seating through the Office of Conferences and Special Events. 

Those who have difficulty walking or are using wheelchairs may want to arrange to be driven to the drop-off sites, which are identified on the campus map. The drop-off site for the Commencement ceremony will be the circular driveway behind Old West, accessible from W. Louther Street. If the Commencement ceremony must take place in the Kline Athletic Center due to severe weather conditions, the drop-off site will be the circular drive off W. High Street, in front of the entrance, at sidewalk level.
