Arrive On Time

Georgia Tech's Spring 2021 ceremony will take place May 7 and 8. Graduates should arrive 30 minutes prior to their ceremony's scheduled start to find a seat. There will not be a formal student processional. 

Doors open one hour prior to ceremony start. 

Get your Grad Pass

Graduates will scan their grad pass to have their name called and displayed as they cross stage. Students can download their grad pass from Marching Order. We recommend taking a screenshot to have it ready for your big moment!
