Special Needs

Plymouth State is committed to assisting any individual requiring special accommodations. If a participating graduate or a guest who plans to attend either Spring Convocation (undergraduates only) or Commencement requires assistance, such as special seating, sign language interpretation, or other services, we ask that you file a Special Services Form to notify us of your needs.  

Please complete the electronic form below.  All forms must be completed by no later than Friday April 29, 2016.

Note: Guests who have requested special accommodations still need a ticket for admittance to the ceremony.


Handicap parking is available on a first come, first served basis for vehicles with a state-issued handicapped placard or plate. Guests may access handicap parking via Field House Road near the PE Center or in Lot 605 near the Facilities Services Building. Plymouth State will make every effort to accommodate the needs of each individual, including drop off and pick up in the handicapped parking areas. Click here for a handicapped parking map.
