Undergraduate Ceremony

Tickets for the Undergraduate ceremony are required due to the capacity of the venue. Each undergraduate student participating in the ceremony will be given six (6) tickets to disperse among family and friends. A graduating student does not need a ticket. However, children who are the age of 3 or older will need a ticket. All tickets are complimentary.

Students will be able to request additional tickets. We will do everything possible to ensure that students are able to invite as many friends and family as they wish, but additional tickets are not guaranteed. Students who requested additional tickets prior to February 19 have been notified via email the number of tickets they have been granted. Students who request additional tickets after February 19 will be notified of a decision approximately March 22. Students who have been approved for additional tickets and need more, please submit a new request. The new request must include the prior approved number of tickets.  Therefore, submit the TOTAL number of tickets requested for approval. The tickets that were previously approved will remain approved. 

As of March 26, all additional tickets have been distributed.

Graduate Ceremony

For the Graduate Commencement Ceremony tickets are not required.
