This ceremony will be translated into Spanish for monolingual guests via wireless, in-ear transmitters. The in-ear transmitters will be available before the ceremony. Look for a sign marked ‘Spanish Translators.’ Graduates will be able to reserve the number of transmitters needed for their guests while reserving their guest tickets and parking passes. On the day of commencement, to receive a transmitter, guests will be required to provide their graduate’s APU ID or any guest’s valid driver’s license. A very limited number of transmitters are available. Please limit your request to guests who are monolingual Spanish speakers.

Upcoming Commencements:
