Commencement Tickets

Grads: You will need guest tickets for outdoor commencement this year

This year, each graduate will receive 2 guest tickets for the outdoor Commencement ceremony. NOTE: It is the University's strong preference to hold the Commencement Ceremony outdoors as scheduled so that each graduate may invite guests. However, in the event of severe inclement weather, the Commencement ceremony will be moved indoors and only the graduates will be able to attend.
