People who are unable to climb or sit in bleachers
Guests who are unable to climb or sit in the bleachers are welcomed to reserve seats in the special seating area (folding chairs on the floor level behind the graduates).
We ask that requests are limited to those who need special accommodations plus three additional people to assist. We understand that this may cause families and guests to be separated during the ceremony and apologize for that inconvenience. However, in order to accommodate the growing number of guests with special needs, we must ask that only those needing special seating utilize those seats.
To request special seating, please email us at email@example.com.
People who are deaf or hearing impaired
A sign language interpreter will be provided at commencement. To request seating in our deaf/hearing impaired section, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you, a family member or friend who need the assistance of a wheelchair for the ceremony, we encourage you to rent or bring one to Kolf Sports Center, if possible. Wheelchairs can be rented (for $10) and delivered directly to Kolf by contacting:

Appleton, WI 54914
If you are having a wheelchair delivered to Kolf, please indicate this using our online form and we will store it for you at the ticket window.
A limited number of parking spaces are available in a section of lot 13 for guests with mobility issues and those with handicap parking passes. To reserve a special parking pass, please email us at email@example.com.
