The undergraduate commencement ceremony takes place in Pitman Theatre. Each graduate will receive four tickets to the theater. Seating is assigned. Graduates do not need a ticket for themselves.
Graduates should pick up their tickets in person at Grad Finale. Tickets cannot be mailed or picked up by anyone other than the graduate.
Each graduate will also receive up to five tickets to a satellite theater on campus. The Bucyrus Conference Center located in the Sister Joel Read Center and Lampe Auditorium in Alphonsa Hall are the designated satellite theaters. Guests in these theaters view the commencement ceremony live on large screens.
All guests need a ticket to enter any of the theaters. Children under the age of 2 do not need a ticket but must sit on the lap of an adult.
Guests with a ticket to Pitman Theatre arriving after the ceremony has begun may need to wait for a break in the ceremony before being seated. Disruptive guests will be escorted out of the theaters.
