Rain plan

The Rain Plan pertains only to graduation ceremonies that take place outdoors on campus (Ivy Cutting and Graduate Commencement).

The Rain Plan goes into effect only if there is a forecast for severe weather, including heavy rain and/or thunder and lightning. With such a forecast, SPU will send a Rain Plan notice via email to all registered graduating students, as well as to faculty and staff. If you do not receive this notice, you can assume the ceremonies will take place, as planned, outdoors. Please, however, plan for the weather. The ceremonies will take place outdoors even in light or moderate rain.
