All outstanding balances, library fees, fines, etc., must be paid in full in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.
A decision will be made at 6:00 am on Thursday, May 2nd if the ceremony will be moved indoors. This decision will be communicated to graduates via e-mail and be posted on the Shorter website at www.shorter.edu. If necessary, the indoor site will be the Winthrop King Centre located on the Shorter Main Campus and will be split into two separate ceremonies. For Traditional graduates and Master degree graduates the ceremony will be held at 10:00am in the Winthrop-King Centre – graduates must be at WKC at 8:30am to begin line-up.

If an indoor ceremony is required due to weather, please be aware that ALL guests must present a ticket for entry into the ceremony (this includes infants and children). Each graduate will be allotted a certain amount of tickets to be determined at a later date. Tickets will be distributed to traditional students at Celebrate Shorter, to the CAPP program students with their cap and gown distribution and to online students via mail to the home address.
