•  All Commencement Ceremonies are ticketed events; all guests attending must have a ticket, including children and infants.
  • Graduation is an exciting milestone for all our students, and we wish that we could provide unlimited tickets to every graduate. However, we must make accommodations for all graduates to have some guests attend.
  • Therefore, each graduate is allotted a limited number of tickets. Allocation is based on the number of students participating in the ceremony and the capacity of the venue.
  • To receive their allotted commencement tickets, graduates must register through Ticket Alternative’s website. Graduates will need to know their student ID number in order to activate their account online. Additional tickets cannot be guaranteed. Please plan accordingly.
  • Graduates can only claim their allotted tickets or purchase additional tickets through Ticket Alternative’s website. There are no ticket pick-up sites available on campus.
  • Graduates experiencing any technical difficulties, please contact Ticket Alternative at 1-877-725-8849.
  • Please revisit the website on Monday, June 11, 2018 for information on how to claim your tickets as well as the number of tickets allotted to graduates for each ceremony.
