Two Guests Maximum Per Graduate

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, graduates may only have 2 ticketed guests attend commencement ceremonies this year. Children do require a ticket to attend and count as guests. Tickets are not transferable. There will not be any additional guest tickets available so that all graduates are able to have guests at the events. Information on how to register guests and other ceremony details will be announced as those details are finalized. Thank you for your patience as we work through these safety issues.

Participating graduates will be contacted about reserving tickets. For any other questions, contact
