Commencement Ceremony Tickets

Reserving Your Tickets

Commencement tickets, which are required for each guest, can be reserved only by graduating students. The number available is limited by building capacity restrictions and the number of students who request tickets before the RSVP Deadline listed on the Academic Calendar. Graduates who have indicated they will attend the ceremony will receive an email notifying them of the number of tickets they can claim after this date.

Claiming Your Tickets

Commencement tickets will be available to claim electronically. Please view the release date of tickets listed on the Academic Calendar under the ‘Graduation/Commencement’ section. Claim only the number that you know you will use. You can always go back and claim your full allotment if you find that you need more. During the checkout process, you will be given the opportunity to donate any tickets you will not use to students who need additional tickets. Once tickets are donated you will be unable to retrieve them. Visit utdgraduationtickets.com to obtain your electronic commencement tickets on or after the ‘Commencement tickets available online date’ listed in the Academic Calendar. For instructions on how to claim your guest tickets, see the step-by-step instructions PDF. If you are experiencing any difficulties, please reference our troubleshooting guide PDF for assistance.

Printing Your Tickets

Your ticket needs to be printed as the actual size, with only one ticket printed per an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper. If you try to shrink/enlarge the ticket size the barcode will not scan at the door and it will delay your entry to the venue. If there are any additional tickets available, you will be able to collect them during your checkout. If there are no additional tickets available when you check out, please check back at another time.

Additional Ticket Information

Additional tickets are tickets that have been donated by your fellow graduates. They will become available starting one week after tickets go-live. You can find this date on the Academic Calendar under ‘Graduation/Commencement’. Selling tickets is prohibited. Children 12 months of age and under who will sit in a lap during the entire ceremony do not require tickets.
