Admission into the Singapore Polytechnic Convention Centre (SPCC)
Admission into the SPCC is strictly by admission ticket and invitation card only.
Graduands and guests who are feeling unwell, or with temperatures of 38oC and above, are advised to stay at home.
The doors to the SPCC will be opened from 8.30 am, 12.30 pm and 4.00 pm for the morning, afternoon and evening sessions respectively.
Graduands who have indicated their intention to attend the graduation ceremony will be sent a Graduation Package about 1½ to 2 weeks before the Graduation Ceremony. The package will contain a bar-coded admission ticket (for the graduand) and two invitation cards (for graduand's guests).
Graduates may invite up to 2 guests to attend their graduation.
Seating in the SPCC Hall is on a first-come-first-serve basis. In the event that all seats in the SPCC hall are filled, guests will be ushered to the Auditorium (located within walking distance to the SPCC) to watch the graduation via live streaming.
Guests with children under 7 years old will be ushered to the Auditorium to watch the graduation proceedings via live streaming.
Guests without invitation cards will also be ushered and seated in the Auditorium to watch the graduation via live streaming. If there are seats available in the SPCC, these guests may be ushered across to the SPCC.
For safety reasons, balloons are not allowed in the SPCC as it may be a fire hazard.
During the ceremony, guests and graduands are requested to switch their mobile phones and other beeping devices to silent mode.
Professional photographers have been engaged by SP to take photographs of graduands as they are being presented on stage. Orders can be made after the ceremony session. Graduands and guests are therefore requested not to leave their seats during the graduation ceremony to take photographs or videos.
After the ceremony, guests and graduands will be invited to a tea reception. As the campus is large, graduands are advised to make specific arrangements where to meet their guests during the tea reception.
Please refrain from lingering inside the SPCC for photo-taking after the ceremony. Your co-operation will be appreciated as the organisers need to prepare the venue for the next graduation session.
You may take photos using the backdrops at the Plaza and outside the Auditorium.
