If you are marching in the Commencement procession, you do not need a ticket. Faculty may request ONE guest ticket in advance, but please note that seating is limited in this section. Requests for guest tickets may be sent to A wait list for faculty guest tickets will begin when capacity has been reached.

A note about Commencement guest tickets: tickets available to MIT faculty are intended for use by faculty members or their guests only. Faculty tickets are not to be given to students. This is a matter of both fairness and logistics, as these tickets are separate and apart from the "general seating" area for which degree candidates receive four guest tickets. If you have questions about tickets available to faculty, please email Thank you.
