Winter 2014 Commencement

Commencement Tickets


A ticket is required for every guest (any age) entering the Andrews B. Hale Auditorium in the Howard Stowe Roberts Cultural Life Center.  For guests who do not have tickets, limited overflow seating will be available in Room 219, upper level of the C.L.C.

Each participating graduate may request a maximum of 4 guest tickets via the Online Order Form, which must be electronically submitted to the Office of Student Life by Thursday, December 4, 2014. (On the order form you will also have opportunity to order a DVD recording of the ceremony.)

In consideration of others, please order only the number of tickets you will need.  At this time, it is not anticipated that additional tickets will become available,* as seating is limited. Please note, there is no Reserved Seating.

If you have more guests than tickets, suggestions to consider:

  • Ask family members to keep young children at home
  • Invite guests to watch live feed in 219 C.L.C.
  • Have guests watch online (click on link in menu at left side of page on day of event)
  • Check this Commencement website page on December 5. If other graduates return unused tickets, notice will be posted that additional tickets may be available.*


After tickets are ordered online, please pick-up the tickets in the Office of Student Life, Rinker Community Service Center, lower level. Your tickets will be available the day after you submit your online order form.  Office hours are M-F: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 
Please make every effort to pick up your ordered tickets in advance. Any pre-ordered tickets not picked up will be packaged with your cap and gown. 

If you find you will not need all of the tickets you originally ordered, please return them to the Office of Student Life so that others may use them.  Questions about tickets may be directed to 585.594.6350.

*In the unlikely event that additional tickets become available, they will be offered one at a time, only on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Friday, December 5, 2014 in the Office of Student Life between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 


If you have a GUEST who uses a wheelchair -- or who is hearing impaired who will need a Sign Language Interpreter, please call Michelle Cronk at 585.594.6837 by Thursday, December 4, 2014 to arrange a special accommodation.  Please encourage these guests to arrive at the C.L.C. by 9:15 a.m.
