University of Arkansas Graduation App
Students are encouraged to download the University of Arkansas Graduation App on Google Play or Apple devices for details on graduation and commencement, including useful information about applying to graduate, attending commencement and receiving the diploma.
Family, friends, and other guests will find helpful information such as commencement
schedules, parking maps, live streaming and the list of prospective graduates.
Graduate Arrival and Check-In
Graduates participating in commencement should check-in by 11 a.m. at the SOUTH entrance
to Barnhill Arena (the side facing the HPER building). At check-in, you must present
the graduate student pass that you received in the email from the Registrar’s office.
In addition to your commencement information, such as name, honors and degree being
received, the card also contains seat information for the ceremony. Just before you
walk across the stage to receive your diploma, your card will be scanned to display
your name and degree on the stage screen. Therefore, it is important that you do not lose, fold, or damage this card.
Graduates will receive complete commencement instructions via email prior to commencement.
Persons with Mobility Impairments
Graduates or guests with mobility impairment may be DROPPED OFF by turning off Meadow
Street between the HPER Building and Meadow Street Parking Garage (MSPG) and driving
toward the South entrance of Barnhill Arena (Lot 59). Pull forward and around to
the WEST side of Barnhill Arena to the disabled drop off location. Upon drop off,
cars may park in the Stadium Drive Garage (Union Parking Deck), the Stadium Lot (Lot
44), or Lots 72 and 73 (West of Reynolds Stadium and the practice facilities off of
Razorback Road). LIMITED special seating will be available at court level. Each disabled
guest can be accompanied by only one additional guest—all other guests in the party
will need to sit in guest seating indicated above. Barnhill does not have an elevator,
so all persons with mobility impairment should plan to enter on the WEST side of Barnhill
Arena. No disabled drop off is available on the Stadium Drive entrance. We recommend
that guests with mobility impairment arrive no later than 11:00 am. For further questions
regarding persons with mobility impairment, please contact Denise Rogers, 479-575-6012.
Free parking is available in any unrestricted parking lot on campus. Download a map of all parking areas. College of Engineering Commencement - Barnhill Arena: Suggested public parking

off is available at the west side of the arena.
