Family Early Admission Passes

It has not been determined if Family Early Admission Passes (also known as tickets) will be used. The size of the venue and the number of graduates will determine this. The decision about whether or not tickets will be used is typically made in April, so that the first Commencement email to graduates has complete and current information. In case it is necessary to use tickets for admission, we are gathering this information in advance.

If it turns out that tickets will not be needed, then no ticket will be required at any time to enter the ceremony and you can feel free to invite your guests and there will be seating for them.

Families and friends not able to be present can use to enjoy the livestream of the Commencement ceremony.
