Commencement Disability Parking/Seating:
Parking for persons with disabilities will be available in the Presidents lot at Clark Atlanta University. The Presidents lot is located at 795 James P.

Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A permanent or temporary state-issued Disability placard is required to park in the designated parking spaces. Please plan to arrive early as reserved parking is not guaranteed. Transportation carts will be available throughout the campus to provide assistance in moving about. 

Venue Entry:
There will be a special entrance for persons with disabilities, located on Atlanta Student Movement Blvd. (Fair Street) directly across from the commencement venue.  Loading and unloading is available at the gate, however, vehicles must proceed to the parking area.

Upon entry, persons who use wheelchairs and one buddy will be directed to that reserved area.  For parties larger than two, each guest must have a ticket for entry.  If there are others in your party, they will need to sit in the color-coded section denoted on their ticket.

All reserved seating is color-coded.  Make sure your graduate obtains the appropriate color for persons with disabilities.  We will have ushers on hand to direct you to the proper seating area, based on your color-coded ticket.
