To be admitted to the White Coat Ceremony, guests must present a wristband. The wristband will also allow guests to gain access to the STLCOP and Duncan parking structures. Wristbands will be issued in multiple colors for the purposes of parking, but all wristbands are general admission for seating.
Getting a Wristband
Guest and families will receive wristbands from their student. Students will receive an email notification that wristbands are available and may pick them up in the Residence Hall from Kilinyaa Cothran, director of professional student affairs.
Each student will be allotted six wristbands.
The White Coat Ceremony is held outdoors on the quad. All seating is general admission.
An alternative seating option will be provided in the auditorium of the Academic and Research Building for guests may be more comfortable indoors. The ceremony will be streamed live for those choosing to sit in the auditorium.
STLCOP Campus Safety personnel will be on site during the White Coat Ceremony to provide assistance to guests in need of special accommodations.
Handicap parking stalls are available in the main level of the STLCOP Garage. Please have the appropriate tags/plates displayed when parking in these spaces.
There will be designated disability seating areas at the White Coat Ceremony. If you require assistance with either getting to or leaving from the ceremony seating area, please stop in the Security Base Station (glass office on main level of the STLCOP Garage) or hail any STLCOP personnel working the ceremony and they will be happy to assist you.
If you have questions or concerns regarding accommodations for guests with special needs or disabilities, please contact:
