Attendance is free; no registration is required.
Tickets are not required for guests. Graduates can bring unlimited guests.
Guest seating will open at the East Main Lobby of Mariucci at 4:00 p.m. Seating is General Admission, unless you indicate a need for special accommodations in your RSVP.

The ceremony is expected to last approximately two hours. All degree candidates will cross the stage as their names are called. Students will be presented by major, not alphabetically. Approximately 400 students will be participating in Commencement.
