We want your MSU Commencement Ceremony to be a joyful celebration, and we are relying on everyone in attendance to help guard against the spread of COVID-19. To help prevent over-crowding, tickets are required for admission. Graduates can reserve up to five tickets through the RSVP process below. Faculty may RSVP separately (See the RSVP forms below.) Face masks will be required at all times before, during and after the Commencement Ceremony. MSU reserves the right to deny admission to anyone without a ticket or who is unwilling to help protect the safety of those attending this event by wearing a face mask. In addition to the precautions mentioned above, if you are feeling symptomatic the day of the event, please stay home and view the ceremony online (link below). We are counting on your cooperation so that you, your family, friends, and loved ones can enjoy this important milestone.

RSVP Required. RSVP open until December 2nd.
