A decision about the location of ceremonies will be made as soon as possible prior to the time. However, a decision may not be made until 6 a.m. on the morning of Commencement. If the rain plan goes into effect, an announcement will be posted on Trevecca's website (www.trevecca.edu) on the morning of May 4. In addition, up-to-date information will be made available via the official university Facebook and Twitter pages at facebook.com/TreveccaNazarene and @Trevecca.

Should the Inclement Weather Plan be implemented, seating will be more limited. Students should locate the rain plan tickets provided in their graduation/regalia packet. Available for pick-up April 29-May 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the campus bookstore, these packets contain the graduate's regalia, rain plan tickets, name card and Commencement handbook. Some students may have chosen to have the packet mailed to their home address or plan to pick it up on the morning of May 4.
