  • Caps & Gowns: Caps and gowns are required for all graduates. Online ordering has ended. For students still needing to order their cap and gown, the deadline has passed and you must email grobeckoffice@jostens.com with your name, height, and weight. A reservation will be made for you and you must pay and pick up your cap and gown on June 6th at BHS. The cost is $45 and must be paid in cash.

  • The day of the ceremony, students need to arrive to the DVC gym adjacent to the stadium by 9:30 am.  The gym will open at 8:00 am.

  • There is no charge for parking the day of the event.  Parents, students and guests can park in any of the 9 DVC parking lots.  Parking lot 1 is adjacent to the stadium, and lot 2, 3 and 4 are the next closest.  Guests can also park in lot 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9, and walk through campus, but this is not advised for disabled guests as there are hills in some areas.  All disabled guests, and guests that need an easier walk are encouraged to park in lot 1, 2, 3, or 4.  Lot 1, 3, and 4 have many handicap spaces available for our guests with handicap placards.  Grad Night will be selling reserved parking in lot 1 closest to the stadium.

  • As guests of Diablo Valley College, there are some rules and requirements we are required to follow during our graduation ceremony.

    • Balloons are not permitted at DVC during the ceremony.  This is because DVC is in the flight path of Buchanan Field.

    • Large signs/pictures, and signs/pictures on sticks are not permitted in the stadium as they can block the view of others.  This is a policy of the DVC Police, and they will not allow them into the stadium.
    • DVC requests that guests not chew gum in and around the stadium.

    • High heels cannot be worn on the track and field as they damage the surface. (Platform shoes with wide, flat footprints are ok)

    • Following the conclusion of the ceremony, parents and guests are not permitted down on the track/field.  Please make plans with your graduate ahead of time to meet outside of the stadium.  There are many beautiful places around DVC to meet, take pictures, and celebrate.
    • Following the ceremony, diplomas will be handed out in the DVC gymnasium adjacent to Viking Stadium.
