Guest Tickets

There is a ticket requirement for guests to attend Commencement ceremonies. Tickets are free of charge, unique to each college ceremony, and only valid at the Commencement ceremony listed on the ticket. 

For 2018 Spring Commencement ceremonies, graduates can claim up to nine guest tickets. The ticketing system will go live on the week of March 5.  

Please note: Graduates do not need tickets for themselves. Children under age 3 who will sit on a guardian's lap during the ceremony do not require a ticket.

Extra Tickets

If extra tickets are available after the first offer, a second offer will open. However, if all tickets for your ceremony are claimed in the initial release period, your college may not have extra. You may exchange tickets only with peers who are participating in the same ceremony. Please note that tickets may not be sold or traded for anything of monetary value.


The University will live-stream each ceremony so family and friends can view their graduate’s recognition from anywhere. On May 18 and 19, visit to access the feed.
