To enter Commencement or School Convocations, all guests must have an e-ticket displayed on a device. Please note, students will need to reserve a separate set of tickets for each ticketed event they plan to attend.


The ticket portal will open again in March 2024.

How to Order

Graduates will be invited to 2 ceremonies:  the school convocation (where graduates will be individually recognized and hear their name read) and the University-wide Commencement ceremony (a ceremony with the Commencement speaker, addresses by President Schill and student speakers). Because these are separate events they each require their own set of tickets.

Some graduate programs do not participate in the school convocations and have departmental ceremonies instead. Your program will communicate with you if this is the case.

Seating Accommodations

All tickets are general admission except Accessible Seating. These seats should be reserved when the ticketing order is placed.

Accessible Seating

Accessible seating is intended for guests who will require a wheelchair or have other accessibility needs. All venues have specific accessible seating locations.


One companion may join the guest in the reserved section for Accessible Seating, but will enter on their general admission ticket. Because these spaces are limited and in high demand we are not able to seat entire parties.
