• Who needs a ticket?  Each graduate will be allowed up to 5 tickets for their guests (not including the graduate).  Children, over the age of 2, must have a ticket adjacent to an adult to enter the hall. Your child is permitted to sit on your lap as long as his/her head can fit underneath your chin. Taller children seated on a parent's/caregiver's lap can obstruct the view of other patrons and will need a ticket.
  • When will I receive my tickets?  Distribution Day, Tuesday, May 8
  • Will more tickets be available?  Due to limited seating, extra tickets will not be available.

Commencement is a celebratory event held annually in May immediately following spring semester. Spring candidates and students who have completed a degree or certificate program from the prior summer or fall are invited to participate.
