Online registration starts on April 3 at 8 a.m. (PST) until May 8 at 5 p.m. (PST).

Each guest will be required to possess a ticket in order to gain admittance to the University Stadium. Children aged 2 and under who sits on an adult's lap do not require a ticket.

Once a bar code has been scanned, any copies of the same ticket will not be valid and will not allow entry into the stadium.

It is the graduating candidate’s responsibility to reserve and distribute tickets to their guests.

TICKET EXCHANGE

If you need more than the maximum allotted tickets for your ceremony, you may be able to obtain them from fellow graduating candidates who will not use their full allotment.

Starting April 17 until May 8, the Cal State LA Alumni Association Facebook page will have a forum for graduating candidates to exchange tickets with one another. In the forum, simply post if you have tickets to exchange OR need tickets. You may only exchange with peers who are participating in the same ceremony. Candidates must print out their extra tickets and exchange them with their fellow candidates at the University-Student Union Lobby Seating Area, Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The ticketing exchange is not monitored or staffed. We recommend that exchanges ONLY happen during the dates and times listed above at the designated location for your own security and safety.
