Commencement 2018: Saturday, April 28th

At this time all tickets have been distributed either by in-person pickup or via mail.  


All students eligible to participate in the Commencement Ceremony were able to RSVP beginning on February 2, 2018 and through March 15, 2018. At this time, any graduation-eligible students who are interested in participating in the ceremony must contact  the Commencement Coordinator (  or 724-836-7743) as soon as possible. 

We are happy to announce that all graduates (that RSVP’d) will receive one extra ticket for the indoor ceremony.  This takes the ticket totals to four for indoors and six for outdoors. Ticket pickup will be on the following dates/times/location:

  • Monday, March 26, 11am-1pm in Chambers Hall
  • Tuesday, March 27, 3pm-4:30pm in Chambers Hall
  • Thursday, March 29, 3pm-4:30pm in Chambers Hall
  • Monday, April 2 thru Friday, April 6 - Tickets can be picked up between 9:30am and 4:30pm in Lynch 207 (second floor of Lynch Hall)

Please note, if you are an August 2017 or December 2017 graduate, or are unable to pick up tickets at the pre-set times, tickets can be picked up by a designated friend or family member.  We are asking everyone to pick up tickets (if possible) so there are no issues with mailed tickets not being received.  Tickets not picked up by Monday, April 9 will be mailed to the address listed when you RSVP’d. If that address has changed, you MUST contact the Commencement Coordinator (  or 724-836-7743).

Please note: While graduates walking in the ceremony do not need tickets, all other guests, including small children (over the age of two) and legacy presenters are required to have a ticket.  Tickets must be presented at the entrance to the ceremony location.  If indoors, guests without tickets will have the option of watching the ceremony on a closed-circuit screen in Ferguson Theater and Campana Chapel or online via a live webcast.
