Tickets will be required for the Winter Commencement Ceremony (Undergraduate and Graduate) on Saturday, December 18th. 

Each student will receive up to six (6) tickets for friends and family. All tickets will be e-mobile tickets and will be scanned at the door.

At this time, we do not plan to reduce ticketing quantities for graduates. However, should CDC guidelines shift, we may need to make changes accordingly. If this were to occur, we will communicate any adjustments to our plans to our graduates and guests. 

The tickets can only be requested by the graduate, not by family and friends.
