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.
