Commencement Tickets

Graduates will be notified in March via campus email when tickets are ready to be reserved. If extra tickets are available, graduates will be notified after the end of the reservation period. Please contact the Central Ticket Office at 906-487-2073 with questions.

Important to note:

  • The number of tickets available per graduate is dependent upon several factors, including the number of graduates planning to attend the ceremony. Ticket availability is determined on a semester basis. 
  • Only graduates participating in the ceremony can request tickets.
  • A ticket is required for entry.
  • Graduates themselves do not need tickets.
  • If a graduate cancels their plans to attend the ceremony, their tickets become invalid. 
  • Tickets are free of charge. Under no circumstance should an exchange of money occur for tickets. 

Family and friends who cannot attend the ceremony may watch it live online.
