The service will take place in the Assembly Hall, located at Fulton County Government Center on 141 Pryor Street at 10:00 a.m.; however, you should plan to arrive around 9:30 a.m. to check in before the ceremony begins.

If you have an uncommon name, please provide a phonetic pronunciation of your name printed directly on your Certificate of Eligibility. We strongly suggest that you contact our office several days prior to the ceremony to ensure that your certificate has been received. We also recommend that you request for a recipient's signature upon delivery, should you choose to mail your certificate.
