GUEST ADMIT TICKETS REQUIRED
The May 2019 Undergraduate ceremony is scheduled to be held in the Hughes Memorial Stadium. In case of inclement weather, the Commencement ceremony could be moved indoors to Talmadge Hill Field House, where Guest Admit Tickets will be required.
Each student who is certified for graduation will be given Guest Admit Tickets to distribute to their guests. The Guest Admit Tickets will be issued at the end of Commencement rehearsal on Thursday, May 17, 2019. This year, each graduating student will receive a limited number of Guest Tickets (depending on the number of students graduating this year) with plenty of alternate viewing area Guest Tickets. In the event of rain, guests attending the Commencement Exercises will be required to have Guest Admit Tickets in order to enter Hill Field House. However, there are plenty seats at the alternate viewing areas on campus for Commencement. These satellite areas are the University Student Center and the Murphy Fine Arts Center. A live video stream of the Commencement Exercises will be available for viewing.
All guests must present the Guest Admit Ticket for scanning in order to be admitted into Hill Field House for the ceremony. Every person must have a ticket regardless of age (this includes infants & children). Ticket scanning provides the University with quick and accurate attendance figures and controls holders of fraudulent, duplicate, or invalid tickets from entering the Field House.
There is plenty of available seating in the alternate viewing/satellite areas for Commencement. Guest Admit Tickets are not required for these locations. All guests without Guest Admit Tickets may view the ceremony at the satellite locations.
