Class of 2021


Reserve your Commencement tickets

Each graduate is entitled to receive a maximum number of 8 non-transferable tickets to the Commencement Convocation.

Tickets guarantee seating in the Georgetown ISD Athletic Complex (Birkelbach Field).  All guests (including children) must have a ticket to enter.

Southwestern University has set in place social distancing regulations at Birkelbach Field. In an effort to follow CDC guidelines, each party of eight (8) will be required to wear masks at all times and will be seated in a pod that will accommodate up to eight family members.  For members of your family who are unable to attend, a livestream of the ceremonies will be available to view.  

Tickets will be mailed mid April to the address you provide on the ticket order form.  If you do not receive your tickets, check the following:

  • Do you have any outstanding fees or fines? Check with the Business Office.  If your financial balances are cleared and all appropriate paperwork filed with the Records Office, Commencement tickets will be distributed to you in mid April.  Otherwise tickets will be available at the Commencement Information Booth on Commencement day, but on a space available basis.  We strongly encourage you to take care of all required paperwork and balances well in advance of Commencement day.
  • Do you have any incomplete paperwork?  Check with the Office of the Registrar.
  • Have you placed your cap and gown rental order?  Visit to place your order.

Deadline to order Commencement Tickets is March 26. 


All students are expected to participate in Commencement Convocation.  However, if circumstances prevent participation, please notify the Events Office at
