EL PASO - If you're planning on going to a UTEP graduation tomorrow, we have some info you might want to know.
The class of about 2,600 graduates will be separated into three commencement ceremonies.
The three commencement ceremony schedules:

2 P.M., the Colleges of Education and Business Administration
7 P.M., the Colleges of Science, Engineering, and Health Sciences, the School of Nursing and the UT co-op programs
All ceremonies will include undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Below is more information, including parking, from a UTEP press release:
As the university honors the class of 2011, family and friends who attend commencement are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before the ceremony to ensure parking and avoid possible traffic congestion along Mesa Street, Schuster Avenue and Sun Bowl Drive.
General parking will be off of Sun Bowl Drive, North of Sun Bowl Stadium and Kidd Field.
Visitors can use lots R-2, R-3, R-4, R-5 (Rudolph lot), near the Haskins Center and P-8 and P-9 off Glory Road.
Disabled parking: R-3 (disabled parking permit required).
Inner campus parking spaces will be open to accommodate commencement attendees and campus guests.
The UTEP parking garage will be open for event guests and campus visitors. Traffic from the parking garage will run North and South on Sun Bowl Drive. Vehicles that exit Schuster Avenue to access the campus will have to travel east on Schuster and enter on Rim Road, Hawthorne Street or University Avenue.
Baby strollers, balloons, noise makers, glass containers and banners are not permitted in the Don Haskins Center.
