Degree candidates who register for Commencement and purchase regalia by the deadline are guaranteed a total of four tickets for their college's ceremony. It is the responsibility of each candidate to plan accordingly when inviting guests to attend a Commencement ceremony. 

Accessing Tickets 

Candidates for graduation who registered to participate in Commencement and purchased regalia by the specified deadlines are eligible to receive four tickets to their designated ceremony. Candidates who do not register for commencement and purchase regalia by these deadlines will NOT be issued any ceremony tickets. 

The tickets will be placed on an account in the candidate's name through an e-ticketing account. Tickets for the Winter 2018 ceremonies will be available starting on Dec. 5, 2018.

Who Needs a Ticket?

Any guest entering the arena, 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 SECU arena. 

Additional tickets in varying amounts may be available. This availability will be based upon the number of candidates participating in each college's ceremony.

Additional Ticket Release

A release for extra tickets will take place on Wed. Dec. 12, 2018 at 6 p.m. Candidates should follow the same log-in process as they did to download their initial four ceremony tickets.

Please note there is no guarantee of extra tickets. Candidates should secure their tickets before inviting a guest. All tickets will be claimed on a first come, first served basis.

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. 

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, and additional tickets (when available) are distributed for each college ceremony on a first-come, first-served basis. 

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.
