Tickets

Degree candidates who register for Commencement and purchase regalia by the deadline will receive six tickets for their college's ceremony. 

Who Needs a Ticket?

It is the responsibility of each candidate to plan accordingly when inviting guests to attend a Commencement ceremony. The Fire Marshal requires that any guest entering the Johnny Unitas Stadium, including infants and children, will need a ticket. There are no exceptions to this policy. Anyone who attempts to attend the ceremonies without a ticket will be denied entrance to the Johnny Unitas Stadium.  

How and When Will I Get Tickets? 

  • Each degree candidate will receive six (6)  seats and no more. Seating is first-come, first-served. Gates will open starting at 7:30am on the day of the ceremony. 
  • An email containing six (6) tickets to your commencement ceremony will be sent to your TU email account.
  • You will receive the email starting Mon, May 2.  All emails will be sent out no later than Friday, May 6.   
    The email is sent FROM: Customer Support customer_support@ticketmaster.com 
    The SUBJECT: Your tickets are attached.
  • If you have not received your six (6) tickets by end of day on Fri, May 6
    • Send an email to from your TU email account. 
    • In the Subject Line, include your Name, College, & Ceremony Date. 
  • Each email has attached six (6) PDF, Print-at-Home tickets. Each file is its own ticket and contains a unique barcode. You may forward the PDF(s) to your guests. Please be careful not to send the same ticket twice.
  • Any tickets with the same barcode distributed to more than one guest will result in an invalid barcode.  Each degree candidate has been allotted six tickets to be used by six guests.  No additional tickets will be distributed. 

Commencement Live Stream

A live stream of each ceremony will be added to the Commencement page one hour prior to the start of each ceremony to accommodate those family members/friends who are unable to attend. Additionally, all ceremonies will be recorded and available to view/download for free approximately 1-2 weeks after the ceremonies. 

  • Due to space constraints, there is not an overflow location on campus where the ceremony will be live streamed.

Ticket Policies 

The sale of unused commencement tickets and any fraudulent activity related to tickets is strictly prohibited. Commencement tickets are allocated to each candidate, based on occupancy rates.

Anyone found to be selling or purchasing unused commencement tickets could face academic discipline including the loss of the privilege to participate in their commencement ceremony. The tickets are university property, therefore each ticket is a “revocable license” which the university can withdrawal at any time at its sole discretion.
