Tickets are allotted to each graduate attending commencement in accordance with a formula based upon the Registrar's count of candidates approved to graduate, the number of available seats in Zorn Arena and your reservation status. The largest possible equal number of tickets will be assigned to each graduate in an effort to be fair to everyone. 



 Commencement tickets are free but required for all guests, including infants and children

All graduate candidates, whether attending commencement or not, should complete the task on your CampS - Student Center - To Do List.  There you will be able to reserve your tickets - For May 2018 each graduate candidate can reserve up to 3 tickets.

Tickets will be available for pick up at Senior Countdown Event on April 19, 2018, and at the Davies Service Center for general admission tickets and the Commencement Office (Schofield 201) for special seating tickets after that. 

Tickets cannot be sold, as they are being provided to you at no cost.



Even if you are not planning to attend commencement PLEASE let us know that by completing the task on your CampS - Student Center - To Do List. It will only take a moment and could make the world of difference to someone attending who could use the tickets.
