Graduation Commencement Ceremony

Accommodations for People with Disabilities at Graduation

Drop Off

See the important parking notice on the parking page.

Disabled parking is available in areas of the main parking lots (B and C) closest to Red Square.

As you turn into the main entrance to the Evergreen campus from Evergreen Parkway, you are entering McCann Plaza. Continue past the parking booth and the entrances to the parking lots and you will enter a loop separated by a stand of trees. Stop near the Native American Welcome Pole. For people using a wheelchair, there is a car ramp next to the bus stop. Evergreen staff are available to show you to the seating set aside for elderly and disabled guests.

This map shows many of the ADA features on campus.


Those who wish to sit inside may watch the ceremony broadcast from the Lecture Hall or Seminar II Building.

Chairs are set aside for disabled and elderly seating. As you face Red Square from McCann Plaza, this special section is located on both the left and right-hand sides directly behind the roped section for the graduating students. Usually, there is plenty of seating for family to sit with disabled guests, but if the amount of seating is inadequate ushers may ask able-bodied guests to find other seats.

Hearing Assistance

Please see an usher to request a hearing assisted device.
