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. 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 may require tickets for guests. Graduates are required to complete a mandatory online graduation survey in order to receive your school celebration tickets.

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