Ceremony Information

Tickets are not required for guest admission to the Spring 2024 Commencement ceremony.

We do ask that degree candidates RSVP for the ceremony (see below) to ensure we plan for adequate seating on the main floor.

As a reminder, to speed the entry process through the event’s metal detectors, we request -- but don’t require -- graduates and guests leave their bags and purses in their vehicles. Please leave cell phones and keys in your pockets when going through the metal detectors.
