Faculty and Staff Tickets

(Please note:  The Commencement Ceremony and the Commencement Day Brunch are ticketed events.)

If you are not marching and would like to attend the Commencement ceremony, you will need to register for a ticket. Those who are participating in the procession do not need tickets to the Commencement Ceremony in Martin Field House.

All faculty and staff who wish to attend the Commencement Day Brunch must have tickets.

You can receive one ticket to the Commencement ceremony and one complimentary ticket to the brunch; however, you MUST register on-line to receive these tickets.

Ticket Pick Up Information

ALL ticket packets for students, faculty and staff will be available for pick up at the Welcome Desk on the first floor of the Kennedy Center starting Monday, May 11 until Friday, May 15. If you are unavailable to pick up your tickets during those times, please contact the Events Office for arrangements at 330.569.5900.

Advanced registration and tickets are needed for the following:

  • Commencement Ceremony in Martin Field House on Saturday, May 16, 2020
  • Commencement Day Lunch in the Kennedy Center on Saturday, May 16, 2020
  • Special parking accommodations on Commencement Day, Saturday, May 16, 2020

Commencement Ceremony ticket information:

Each graduate can register for up to five (5) tickets allowing them to invite five guests to attend the ceremony in Martin Field House. The graduating student does NOT need a Commencement ticket. Registration also includes a ‘wish list’ number if more than five tickets are desired. Once registration closes on May 1, any extra tickets will be distributed evenly based upon the wish list requests until all extra tickets are gone. The graduate will be notified by May 8 of any additional tickets they will be receiving and those will be added to their ticket packets.

All graduates must register for Commencement tickets by May 1, 2020.

Unfortunately, Commencement tickets will NOT be available on Commencement Day since all tickets will be allocated and distributed based upon the advanced registration process. It is important that students only ask for tickets that they plan to use so that all who wish to attend are able to and there are no unused seats.

Commencement Day Brunch ticket information:

Each graduate can register for up to three (3) complimentary brunch tickets with the option of purchasing additional tickets in advance.  The cost of brunch tickets is $15 for adults, $10 for children 6 – 11 years old and free for children under six years. Graduating students MUST have a brunch ticket to attend.

Advanced registration by the May 1 deadline is required for guests to receive their complimentary brunch tickets.

Special accommodations for parking information:

Special parking passes can be requested using the same on-line registration process as is used for the Commencement tickets or by emailing events@hiram.edu. Due to limited space available, we ask that you register for special parking needs even if you already have a government licensed handicap tag to allow for proper planning.

If you have questions, please contact the Events Office at 330.569.5900.
