Report to Master's Line Up at 9 a.m. in Worthen Arena, Gate 2, on the concourse level. Master's students sit as one group, not by department.
You will receive a name card at the line up site, which will be used to read names. Print your name on the card and hand it to the reader before crossing the stage. If your name is difficult to pronounce, include a phonetic pronunciation as well as the printed name. Please fill out the back of the card clearly so you can receive information about the pictures taken of you during the ceremony.

such as the cap, gown, and tassel. The Ball State Bookstore in the Art and Journalism Building has regalia in stock at all times.
