Tickets

Your regalia (cap and gown) give you access to the Greek Theater. That being said, all of your guests will need a ticket to enter the venue. As we get closer to graduation we will allow you to request tickets through this website.  There is no limit on how many tickets you can request.

Important Commencement Details...

Commencement Celebration...

On Thursday, May 18th, from 4:00-6:00 PM, we will celebrate your accomplishments and announce the Defining Leadership Principle and Beyond Yourself awards at a Commencement Celebration in the Haas Courtyard. All of your friends and family are encouraged to attend. Please register here.

Arrival on Friday...

Graduates will need to be at the Greek Theater approximately 90 minutes before the start of the ceremony already dressed in full regalia (cap and gown). Please plan to enter on the South side of the Greek theater (closer to Haas and Memorial Stadium) and you will be shown behind the stage to line up. Staff will be there to help with your regalia if you have any questions. Please don’t bring any personal belongings as there is nowhere to store those items during the ceremony.

Commencement Reception...

Immediately following the ceremony there will be a Commencement Reception in the Haas Courtyard for family and friends. This will include all Full-Time and Evening Weekend graduates.
