If you are marching in the Commencement procession, you do not need a ticket. Tickets are not required for the Investiture of Doctoral Hoods and Degree Conferral ceremony.

A note about Commencement guest tickets: Due to the increase over recent years in the number of graduates and their guests at the Exercises, the Commencement Committee regrets that faculty guest tickets are no longer offered as a matter of course. However, individual faculty requests will be reviewed by Chancellor Eric Grimson—please send a note with the pertinent details.
