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