Due to building occupancy code and to ensure the safety of our guests, tickets are required for all guests (including children two years and older) entering Roos House to attend the Commencement ceremony. There is a five-ticket limit per student so we can be sure that all guests can be seated in the Field House. Tickets will be distributed in the Student Commencement Packets when pre-ordered regalia is picked up at the Campus Bookstore.
How to claim Guest Tickets:
- Submit the Application for Graduation on UCanWeb by the appropriate deadline.
May 2017 Graduates: Apply to Graduate January 1, 2017 – March 15, 2017
*** YOU MUST indicate in the Application for Graduation that you will be attending the Commencement ceremony. ***
- Pre-order your regalia (cap, gown, and tassel) at http://collegegrad.herffjones.com/ by March 12, 2017.
*** If you already have regalia and do not need to order, then you MUST notify the Campus Bookstore (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 19 so a Student Commencement Packet will be reserved for you. ***
- You MUST pick-up your pre-ordered regalia at the Campus Bookstore between April 24, 2017 and 4:00 p.m. on May 5, 2017. You will receive a Student Commencement Packet with your regalia order which will include your 5 guest tickets.
*** If you cannot pick up your regalia by the deadline of May 5, 2017, you MUST contact the Campus Bookstore to make alternative arrangements, otherwise you will forfeit your tickets. ***
>> Any student that does not pick up their regalia/Student Commencement Packet by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 5, 2017 (or make alternative arrangements), will forfeit their guest tickets. >>
