This event is intended for those graduating from Undergraduate studies.

No large purses, backpacks or bags will be allowed at the celebration. All bags will be subject to search, and the University will be adhering to the NFL Clear Bag Policy during the in-person events. The policy states that each guest can bring one large clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or the 12" by 6" by 12" clear bag – plus a small clutch. The larger clear bag must be a standard 12" by 6" by 12" made of clear PVC vinyl and easily searched. A small clutch will be allowable as it provides privacy for small personal items, while also being easily searched.

No outside beverages, glass bottles, or ice chests will be allowed into the event.

No pets are allowed on the field, except service animals with proper credentials.

Santa Clara University is a "No Smoking" campus. Smoking is allowed off campus grounds. All bags will be subject to search.
