Commencement Tickets
This year's commencement takes place on May 22, 2016. Each graduate will receive a maximum of four guest tickets. Each graduate who has been approved to graduate by the Office of the Registrar will be able to go online to order their commencement tickets.

Commencement tickets

Admission to commencement is by ticket only.  A ticket grants access to the commencement ceremony and the individual school events.  Due to limited seating, each graduating student receives a maximum of four tickets.  All guests require a ticket, including children.  Tickets must be presented to gain admittance.  The graduating student does not require a ticket.  Additional tickets are not available.  

Seating in the main tent is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Once seating in the main tent is filled, all ticketed guests will be directed to the overflow tents for viewing.

All students who plan to attend commencement must order and reserve tickets online, beginning Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at noon through Sunday, May 1, 2016.

Each graduate must pick up his or her tickets in person.  Each graduate must present photo identification when picking up tickets and sign a release that tickets were received.
