Clear Bag Policy

To provide a safer environment and more expedited entry, the University of South Carolina Athletics has established a Clear Bag Policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought for all events, including Commencement. The policy also includes a list of non-permissible items that cannot be brought into the arena. Guest are permitted to bring one unopened bottle of water. Additional water bottles will be available for purchase at concession stands. 

Magnetometers will be used during entry to promote security. 

Per University policy, masks are required in all university buildings, including the Colonial Life Arena. 

Buying and Selling Tickets Prohibited 

Do not buy or sell commencement tickets. If you are found selling or buying guest tickets, your tickets may be revoked and you may not be able to participate in your commencement ceremonies.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
