Ticketing for Class of 2019 Commencement - Indoor Ceremony

Ticketing for the indoor 2019 Commencement Ceremony opens March 18, 2019, at 7:00 a.m. Central Time and closes on April 26, 2019. 

Graduating Seniors:  Click here for a complete, step-by-step guide for reserving your complimentary tickets.

If Commencement is held indoors due to inclement weather, all seating in Skoglund Auditorium will require tickets. Every senior participating in the ceremony is guaranteed at least three tickets.  No tickets are required for general seating if Commencement is held outdoors.

The Commencement ceremony will be live-streamed to Viking Theater in Buntrock Commons, Tomson Hall 280, and Boe Memorial Chapel regardless of weather or ceremony location.  No tickets are required for these venues, but guests should plan to arrive early to ensure seating.  We encourage families with elderly guests or small children to take advantage of the air-conditioned simulcast locations.

The decision to hold Commencement on the Campus Green or inside Skoglund will be announced during Baccalaureate at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 26.  If the ceremony will take place inside, the news will be posted in Buntrock Commons, on the college website, and at our switchboard (507-786-2222).
