office is open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Mon - Fri; however, Monday,
April 30, staff will not be available to distribute tickets
until 1:00 pm.
Please also be prepared to show photo ID at time of pick-up.
Tickets will NOT be distributed unless you have completed

form is SEPARATE from the Application for Graduation required
by the Registrarís Office, and is necessary if you plan
to participate in the Commencement exercises.)
Each student will receive seven (7) tickets automatically
at ticket pick-up, and a special commemorative ticket for
each graduate! Each one of your guests will need a ticket
to enter the graduation ceremony (graduates do not need
tickets). Children ages two and under do not need tickets.
Additional tickets beyond your complimentary seven will
be available for purchase until FRIDAY, MAY 11. A payment
of $15 per additional ticket is due at pick-up. Check, credit
card or cash (exact change, please) are acceptable methods
of payment for the additional tickets. If you will not need
the additional tickets you had requested, or need a different
number of them, simply mention so when picking up your tickets,
and you will be charged accordingly. All ticket sales are
final, so please purchase only those you will need.
