Only guests of graduates from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Quinlan School of Business, and the Stritch School of Medicine need tickets to enter the arena. All other ceremonies are open admission and no ticket is required.
Stritch School of Medicine graduates should contact their Dean's office for ticket information.
Each College of Arts and Sciences graduate will receive four (4) tickets for his or her guests and each Quinlan School of Business graduate will receive five (5) tickets for his or her guests. These tickets are selected when you register to participate in the Commencement ceremony. All guests, including small children, must have a ticket.
Extra tickets for these ceremonies are not available. Due to the large sizes of our graduating classes, we cannot offer any more tickets to graduates. It is recommended that graduates needing extra tickets ask fellow students to see if they have tickets they no longer need.
During the ticket selection process, students will provide an e-mail address for the tickets to be e-mailed to them. Once the ticket selection process is complete, a confirmation e-mail from UniversityTickets.com will then be sent to the e-mail address provided. In the confirmation e-mail will be a link to print off the tickets. Students can either print off and give the tickets to their guests or forward them the confirmation email so their guests can print them off themselves.
Each ticket contains an individual barcode that cannot be duplicated. Any ticket that is copied will not scan correctly, and that individual will not be allowed to enter the Gentile Arena.
You must present a physical paper ticket at the door in order to be admitted. Tickets on a mobile phone or other electronic device will not work, and you will not be allowed to enter the Gentile Arena.
Selling tickets to Commencement ceremonies is considered scalping and is therefore illegal. Please report any student selling Commencement tickets to your dean’s office. Any student found to be selling tickets will face immediate discipline from their dean’s office.
