April 20, 2021

Graduates who have registered to participate in the upcoming 2021 commencement ceremony have until Wednesday, April 28 at 5 p.m. to pick up their guest tickets in the Office of the Registrar (IST Building, room 2052). Each graduate will receive four tickets for their guests. The location in the stadium for the guest seating will be randomly assigned, but the four seats will be together. Every guest in attendance is required to have a ticket. In an effort to maintain COVID-19 precautions, additional tickets are not available for the 2021 commencement ceremony.

Every person attending commencement is expected to accept personal responsibility for their actions by following all current CDC recommendations and University policies and procedures. Guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to emphasize that everyone must follow all steps to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 at all times. This includes proper use of face masks, social distancing, and personal hygiene. It is important to note that CDC guidance is based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and its variants.
