Tickets

Reserve your Commencement tickets

Each graduate is entitled to receive a maximum number of 8 tickets to the Commencement Convocation.  To be placed on a wait list for additional tickets, email events@southwestern.edu.  We encourage you to reach out to your classmates to see if they have extra tickets to spare.

Tickets guarantee seating in the Corbin J. Robertson Center.  All guests (including children) must have a ticket to enter.

Tickets will be mailed mid September 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 Jostens.com to place your order.
