Parking 

All MVCC lots will be available for parking in order to gain access to the Jorgensen Athletic and Event Center Field House. Although there are a number of parking spaces set aside for individuals with mobility-related disabilities, those spaces may fill up fairly quickly. To avoid encountering difficulties, individuals with mobility issues who are driving should arrive early; those who drive with someone else can be conveniently dropped off at the entrance of the building to wait while the driver parks his or her vehicle.

Graduates who cannot use stairs

Graduates who cannot use stairs should contact the Coordinator of Accessibility Resources at 315-731-5702 to discuss seating and the awarding of diplomas.

Guest seating

There is an area in the Field House set aside for wheelchair users. There will be chairs placed in that area so each wheelchair user should be able to sit with one member of his or her group.

Sign Language Interpreters

Sign Language interpreters will interpret the entire event.

Visibility

The Jorgensen Athletic and Event Center Field House is an enormous facility. Individuals with some degree of vision loss should arrive early in order to get seating as close as possible to the graduates and the stage.

Alternate format materials

Individuals who require large print or other alternate format materials should request these by contacting the Office of Accessibility Resources (see contact information below) at least two weeks prior to the ceremony.
