Hi Harry,
For high school, I just had the person ahead of me walk me to the stairs
(ramp in your case) and then they walked across and I just went after them.
I'd practiced the day of though cause we'd had a rehearsal as a group.
Sometimes the people giving you the diploma might direct you, though this
didn't happen in my case. The person ahead of me just waited for me on the
other side of the stage and then we walked back to our seats together. I
didn't know this person beforehand but it wasn't too difficult to ask them.
Good luck, and congratulations on your grad.

Hello everyone,
I wanted to get everyone's advice before I call the registrar's office to
make arrangements for a guide.
I'm graduating this Saturday, and am not sure what to do about walking
across the stage to the person to get my diploma, etc.  What have you guys
done who have graduated?  As I understand it you walk up  a ramp, to the
person, shake hands with him an who ever else is there, and walk down the
other side.  Thoughts?
P.S.  Disability SErvices said they don't have anything set up, but that the
student just calls the registrar's office and arranges for a guide if they
