Do graduates need a ticket to enter the commencement venue?

Yes, students who are eligible to participate in commencement (as defined above) will receive an email sent to their UTA email account on TBA with instructions on claiming their graduate ticket and their guest tickets.

This offer will begin TBA at 10 am and last until noon on TBA, at which time all reserved guest tickets will no longer be available and all unclaimed guest tickets will return to a central ticketing pool. Graduates are asked to download only the actual number of guest tickets that they will use so students who need them can claim them through Ticketing Offer 2.
