Faculty Instructions


All full-time faculty should have a ticket for the events they are participating in. Tickets for faculty can still be ordered through the commencement ticketing site. Please log in with your email and password. You can order one ticket and one parking pass for the ceremony. Tickets are required as they help us determine how many seats to reserve for faculty.


Parking will be in Lot H on West Campus. You can order your parking pass along with your tickets through our University Tickets portal.


Regalia is required for faculty for this event and each faculty member is expected to provide their own commencement regalia.
