For the May 2024 undergraduate commencement ceremonies, each undergraduate student eligible for graduation is guaranteed up to six (6) main arena tickets. Tickets are free.

Only undergraduate students who have applied for graduation and who have confirmed their attendance for the university’s main ceremonies will be able to claim their tickets.

The KCAC box office will be open for ticket pickup on

  • Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
    (until May 9)
  • Friday, May 10, 10:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 11, 7:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.

In Brief

  • Tickets are required for those attending Undergraduate Commencement (associate’s and bachelor’s degrees). Note: yellow tickets are for the 9:00 a.m. ceremony and blue tickets are for the 2:00 p.m. ceremony. 
  • No tickets are needed for Graduate Commencement (master’s and doctoral degrees).
  • Students who confirm their attendance for graduation by 11:59 p.m. on April 17, 2024, will be able to claim up to six tickets for their guests.
  • Each ticket will allocate one (1) general admission seat in the arena seating area.
  • All tickets are general admission, so guests are encouraged to arrive early and enter together to be assured seating together. Seat saving is not permitted; ushers will be filling all open seats as the arena fills.
  • Tickets are free and cannot be “sold.” Students caught selling their tickets will be subject to disciplinary action by the university.
  • Students graduating do not need a ticket. Students who are graduating will receive their line-up card during check-in.
  • Handicapped accessible seating is available. Those seats are to be counted in the six-ticket-per-undergraduate allocation.
  • Children under three who can sit on an adult’s lap will not need a ticket, but they must remain there during the ceremony.
