Tickets are not required for guests for the university commencement ceremony as long as it is held in the Roy Kidd Stadium. However, students are being issued two rain tickets to be used in case of inclement weather, they will only be necessary if the ceremony is move to the Alumni Coliseum. Unfortunately, two is the limit for all students, because of the capacity of the coliseum. We will have additional sites set up on campus where guests without rain tickets will be able to view the ceremony live on a large screen. For all college convocations, seating is at first come first serve basis. (Return to top)
