Baccalaureate services for the Class of 2017 are planned for Sunday, May 21. Baccalaureate will be held at 10:00 a.m. in the Ronald and Lynda Nutt Theatre of the Clayton Center for the Arts. Graduation exercises for the Class of 2017 will be held at 3:30 p.m. on the lawn between Anderson Hall and Sutton Science Center.  There will be no tickets and attendance will not be limited if the ceremony is held outside.

In case of inclement weather, Commencement will be moved to the Ronald and Lynda Nutt Theatre of the Clayton Center. Entrance to the inclement weather location is by ticket only and each graduate will be allotted three (3) tickets. All non-ticket guests will be directed to the Boydson Baird Gymnasium in the Cooper Athletic Center where the ceremony will be broadcast live in high definition on the large screen. The decision to move inside will be announced on the MC Website and at Baccalaureate on Sunday. Seniors will be able to pick up tickets during graduation rehearsal on Friday, May 19 (a photo ID will be required to pick up tickets and they must be signed for).

The president invites all graduates, their families and friends, and Commencement participants to attend a reception honoring Maryville College's 2017 graduates immediately following Commencement. It will be held in the Clayton Center Foyer.
