Commencement Public Safety Clear Bag Policy
Florida A&M University has implemented a clear bag policy for Commencement to provide a safer environment for the public and expedite entry into the Alfred Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center and Teaching Gymnasium. This policy limits the size and types of bags permitted. Items must be carried or fit into a permissible clear plastic bag or a small clutch (no larger than 4.5” x 6.5’). All persons, approved bags and permitted items are subject to search upon entry and may be subject to additional search within the Alfred Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center and Teaching Gymnasium. Anyone possessing prohibited items will be asked to return them to their vehicle or dispose of them at the entrance doors.
FAMU has the authority to prohibit any items deemed to be a security or safety risk. This policy is subject to change without notice.
