Commencement Tickets

  • Ten (10) guest tickets will be distributed to graduates in fall quarter via email. 
  • Tickets are required for all guests attending the main commencement ceremonies. Graduates do not need a ticket.
  • Students are responsible distributing tickets to their guests prior to the ceremony. Guests can present the ticket on their mobile device or have a printed version.
  • Each ticket is unique and will be scanned before entrance into a ceremony.
  • Duplicating tickets will result in some of your guests being turned away due to invalid tickets. Make sure to print 10 individual tickets (not 10 copies of the same ticket).
  • Additional tickets are not available for purchase. Students can fill out the Commencement Extra Ticket Request Form to be put on a waitlist to obtain extra tickets should they become available. Students who do not use their ticket allocation are encouraged to share with others.
