What happens at Ticket Distribution?
Use our handy online guide to navigate the process and options of ticket distribution.
I Can't Get to Ticket Distribution!
If you have extenuating circumstances, you may send someone to pick up your tickets for you. Your proxy must present a completed proxy form and his/her CUID at the designated University Commencement ticket distribution location to pick up your tickets.
...And After I Get My Tickets?
Keep them in a safe place, and don't lose them! They cannot be replaced. Once you have them, let your parents know, and come up with a plan for getting the tickets to your guests before the morning of Commencement. (You think you'll have time that day, but you won't!)
We Like You a Lot, But We Don't Like It When You Sell Your Tickets!
The selling or buying of University Commencement tickets is strictly prohibited. Tickets hold no official resale value and are solely for the purpose of allowing the guests of graduating students to attend Commencement. Unwanted tickets should be returned to the respective school.
