NOT PLANNING TO ATTEND?
Ticket information if you plan to walk at Commencement.
Commencement tickets are free but required for all guests, including infants and children.
Tickets are allotted to each graduate based upon the Registrar's count of candidates registered for graduation and the number of available seats in Zorn Arena. The number of tickets to be given to each graduate for the Spring 2013 Ceremony on Saturday, May 18th will be three (3).
Tickets will be available at the Senior Countdown Event on Wednesday, April 24, and distribution will continue at the Service Center until the day before the ceremony. A valid Blugold Card is required.
NO ADDITIONAL TICKET REQUESTS ARE BEING ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME. Tickets are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis and once we run out, the remote site broadcast location will be your next option.
All additional ticket requests are handled through the Commencement Tickets procedure to provide the greatest number of tickets to all who are attending the ceremony.
Tickets cannot be sold, as they are being provided to you at no cost.
If you are unable to get as many tickets as you want, remote site broadcasts will be presented in Davies Center — in Woodland Theater (328) and Ojibwe Rooms A and B (330A and 330B). No tickets are required for these locations. These spaces offer comfortable seating for elderly guests and those with small children.
