Tickets & Registration

Commencement on the National Mall

Graduates and their guests do not need tickets to attend Commencement on the National Mall. If you plan to attend the ceremony on the Mall, we ask that you register your guests online. Registration will be available at a later date. You may register up to six guests. Thank you for your help as we plan this momentous occasion. 

School Celebrations

Each school hosts its own unique commencement celebration and tickets are required for guests. The number of tickets provided varies by school. Graduates are required to complete a mandatory online graduation survey in order to receive your school celebration tickets. The survey link will be available at a later date.

Tickets are not required for children who sit on parents' or guests' laps. This applies to children under the age of two.
