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

Ticket Pick Up Information

ALL ticket packets for traditional students, faculty and staff will be available for pick up at the Welcome Desk on the first floor of the Kennedy Center starting Monday, December 9 until Friday, December 13. If you are unavailable to pick up your tickets during those times, please contact the Events Office for arrangements at 330.569.5900.

Tickets for Center for Adult Studies graduates will be available for pick up starting Friday, December 6 at the Center for Adult Studies on the second floor of Hinsdale Hall. 

Advanced registration and tickets are needed for the following:

  • Commencement Ceremony in Hayden Auditorium on Saturday, December 14, 2019
  • Commencement Day Lunch in the Kennedy Center on Saturday, December 14, 2019
  • Special accommodations for parking on Commencement Day, Saturday, December 14, 2019

Commencement Ceremony ticket information:

Each graduate can register for up to ten (10) tickets allowing them to invite ten guests to attend the ceremony in Hayden Auditorium. The graduating student does NOT need a Commencement ticket. Registration also includes a ‘wish list’ number if more than ten tickets are desired. Once registration closes on November 29, 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 December 2 of any additional tickets they will be receiving and those will be added to their ticket packets.

All graduates must register for the Commencement tickets by November 29, 2019.

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 Lunch ticket information:

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

Advanced registration by the November 29, 2019 deadline is required for the student to receive their complimentary lunch 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 contacting the Special Events office at 330.569.5900. 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.
