As a doctoral degree recipient, you can request one (1) ticket for yourself and up to three (3) guest tickets.
We will be holding a lottery for a fourth guest ticket. You may enter the lottery when you register for Convocation and extra tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. While we cannot guarantee an additional ticket, we hope to accommodate as many requests as we can. All graduates participating in the lottery for a fourth ticket will be notified on Tuesday, May 1.
There will be a livestream of the ceremony on our website. We encourage your guests who cannot attend to watch the ceremony in real time on May 18.
Note: Infants under the age of two do not require a ticket, but they cannot occupy their own seat and must sit on the lap of a parent or guardian.
Deadline to register for tickets: Wednesday, April 25, 2018.
You must register for tickets for yourself and your guest(s) by the deadline to participate in the GSAS Convocation.
