Tickets

Graduation Celebration

Spring 2017
Summer 2017

  • 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.
  • The allotted tickets will be available to claim online from Monday, March 20, 2017 at 9 a.m. through Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 12 noon. This is the ONLY timeframe during which you will have guaranteed access to the free allotted tickets.
  • Starting on Friday, May 5, 2017 from 9 a.m. – 12 noon (pending ticket availability), any allotted tickets that were not claimed will be available for graduates to purchase online. IF tickets are available for purchase, graduates may purchase up to 5 additional tickets at a cost of $2.00 per ticket.
  • 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
