Commencement 2017

Ceremony Ticket Information

Ticket packet pickup for everyone will be on Wednesday and Thursday, March 29 and 30, from 11:00am until 1:00pm in Chambers Hall.  If you are unable to make it to Chambers Hall during those times, you may come to the second floor of Lynch Hall, suite 207, during normal business hours (8:30am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday) through Friday, April 7.  
 
If you are no longer in the Greensburg/Pittsburgh area or your schedule will not allow you to pick up the tickets, graduates may also designate a friend or family member to pick up the tickets.  An email with the designee's name must be sent to Sherra Moors (sherramoors@pitt.edu ).
All tickets not picked up by April 7 will be mailed.  
 
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. Eligible graduates who RSVP’d to walk in the processional will be issued a maximum of six tickets for an outdoor ceremony and three tickets for an indoor ceremony. Tickets are clearly marked by location and must be presented at the entrance to the ceremony location, which will be determined by April 27.  If indoors, guests without tickets will have the option of watching the ceremony on a closed-circuit screen in Ferguson Theater or online via a live webcast. 
 
A very limited number of extra tickets were randomly issued to students who expressed interest.  Those student have been contacted and their extra ticket will be in their ticket packet.
