Guest Admit Tickets

Degree candidates who apply for graduation and purchase regalia by the published deadline are guaranteed Guest Admit Tickets. The quantity of Guest Admit Tickets per degree candidate is calculated based upon the space available according to city and state guidelines for maximum capacity of the venue.


ALL guests must have an OFFICIAL UNIVERSITY GUEST ADMIT TICKET to enter the Talmadge Hill Field House. Each degree candidate who is certified for graduation will be provided with Guest Admit Tickets to distribute to their guests. The Guest Admit Tickets will be issued at the end of commencement rehearsal. Each degree candidate will be issued Guest Admit Tickets based on the number of degree candidates and the legal maximum capacity for the venue based on the Baltimore City and Maryland State fire code regulations.

The number of Guest Admit Tickets for Fall 2021 Commencement will be 4 per Degree Candidate. All guests without Guest Admit Tickets may view the ceremony via the live stream on the University website.

All guests must present a Guest Admit Ticket for scanning in order to be admitted into Talmadge Hill Field House for the ceremony. Every person must have a Guest Admit Ticket regardless of age (this includes infants & children). Ticket scanning provides the University quick and accurate attendance figures and controls holders of fraudulent, duplicate, or otherwise invalid Guest Admit Tickets from entering the Field House.


live stream of each ceremony will be accessible via the University’s Commencement page to accommodate those family members and friends who exceed the number of Guest Admit Tickets available.


Masking and social distancing guidelines and protocols will be determined by Baltimore City and Maryland State guidelines and laws at that time.

  • For Fall 2021 Commencement, face masks will be worn by ALL in attendance.
  • Families are encouraged to sit together in pods and distance from other groups.
