The Class of 2018 Commencement will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 11:00 am at the Alexander Field House. If you need additional information, please contact Cindra Leeman.

As the graduating classes at MMA have grown in recent years, it has been increasingly challenging to assure that the families of graduates are able to have priority seating at Commencement. Only people holding tickets will be admitted into the Field House.

Tickets…each graduating student who is marching at Commencement will receive 6 tickets. Students not needing all 6 tickets can donate to a pool. Students needing extra tickets, can go to the ticket pool and if available select up to 2 tickets.  These tickets are for the Field House. Graduates may print their claimed tickets or email them to family at

Overflow seating will be provided in the Margaret Chase Smith Gymnasium, which is connected to the Field House complex. Overflow seating will not require tickets, and attendees can watch the webstream on large screens in real time.
