2020 Brookhaven College Commencement Ceremony

Commencement ceremonies have been postponed at this time.

Comerica Center
2601 Avenue of the Stars
Frisco, TX 75034 

Doors open at 4:45 p.m.

Ceremony begins promptly at 6 p.m.

The guest entrances are located on the northwest and northeast corners of the Comerica Center. Access is available through parking garage E or the front entrances. We are pleased that you will be able to share this special occasion with your graduate. For the safety, comfort and enjoyment of all guests, please carefully review these instructions.

Graduation is to be a respectful event. Family and friends should listen quietly to all student and college speakers and refrain from shouting as names are called. Please be respectful of all graduates and their families. Every family wants to hear the name of their graduate as she or he walks across the stage. To help expedite the end of the ceremony, we ask that you meet your graduate outside of the Comerica Center following the ceremony.
