Annual Graduation Ceremony

Guidelines and Procedures


To:  The UTech, Jamaica Community


The annual Presentation of Graduates will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2015 commencing at 2:00 pm at the National Arena in Kingston. The following are some important reminders to the UTech, Jamaica community to ensure the smooth running of the graduation ceremony and to ensure that it is a memorable day for our graduands and guests.


Please be reminded that seating in the auditorium at the National Arena is very limited and we therefore ask that persons adhere to the following guidelines and procedures.

Attendance at the 2015 Graduation Ceremony is limited to:

  •        Members of the 2015 Graduating Class who are duly registered
  •        Guests of graduates with appropriate tickets (each graduate is allowed to invite 2 guests)

Members of the University Council

  •        Members of The Academic Board
  •        Faculty/staff who are processing
  •        Specially invited guests with invitations

Accredited workers

Faculty/staff not processing must confirm their attendance in advance so that seating may be reserved.  (A valid UTech, Jamaica ID must be presented for entry into the Arena.  Reservations are to be sent the Corporate Communications Unit via email: corporatecomm@utech.edu.jm.)

  • No one will be allowed in the Arena without a proper pass.  Graduands are asked to prevent embarrassment to their party by discouraging persons from seeking to attend the ceremony without an appropriate pass.

Each person (including children) is required to have a ticket and will be given a seat.  No individual will be allowed to enter the venue without a ticket regardless of age.

  • Guests are discouraged from bringing babies/very young children to the ceremony as no special arrangement is made to accommodate them.
  • All guests are asked to be seated by 12:30 pm.
  • Guests are required to remain seated during the procession which starts at 1:30 pm.
  • Ticketed guests arriving during the procession will have to wait until after the procession to be seated.  Please note that seats cannot be guaranteed after 12:30 pm.  Guests with invitations or staff with ID who confirmed their attendance will be seated in the gallery after the procession ends at 2:00 pm.
