Reserve Tickets

Graduating candidates who have applied for graduation and have been approved to participate in the Commencement ceremonies will be able to confirm participation and reserve guest tickets starting April 3, 2017 at 8 a.m. (PST) until May 8, 2017 at 5 p.m. (PST).  After 5 p.m. on May 8, 2017, participation and guest tickets will no longer be guaranteed. 

Eligible candidates may reserve a maximum of 10 guest tickets. No extra tickets will be distributed. 

A ticket is required for each guest. It is the graduating candidate’s responsibility to reserve and distribute tickets to their guests. Children, ages two and under, do not need a ticket if they are sitting on the lap of an adult. There are no further exceptions.
