Students should arrive at the Beach Ballroom between 30-60 minutes before the start of your ceremony. Once you have registered you will be directed to your allocated seat. You should be wearing your gown and hood before the ceremony starts. RGU ushers will be on hand to guide you through the ceremony and direct you to the stage when it is time to receive your award.

When you proceed to the stage, do not take anything up on the stage with you, this includes your hat. Your hat must be left at your seat with any other belongings, as you will return to the same seat after you have received your award.

At the end of the ceremony you should vacate the building promptly. You will have the opportunity to meet your friends and family outside the building.

Enjoy the ceremony, it is your special day!
