Students in ProcessionIn order to comply with fire and safety regulations, admission to the 2018 Saint Vincent College Spring Commencement ceremony will be by ticket only.  The ticketing system is explained below:

All graduates participating in the Commencement ceremony are required to complete the online commencement form, which will be available between Monday, Feb. 19, and Monday, March 19.  This will provide a single location to gather all information regarding Commencement, eliminating the need to communicate with multiple offices.  Through this form, graduates will be able to:

  • Order ceremony tickets
  • Confirm attendance at Commencement
  • Order academic attire
  • Order name cards and announcements
  • Confirm phonetic spelling of name to be read at ceremony
  • Request special-needs parking passes and tickets
  • Provide information to Public Relations for publicity

Phase One: Feb. 19 - March 19, 2018 
All degree candidates who have applied for graduation through the Registrar's office will be guaranteed four (4) tickets in the Gymnasium.  All additional tickets will be issued for general admission seating in the satellite viewing areas.  Between Feb. 19 and March 19 seniors or their families may fill out the online request form to reserve their tickets.  To avoid confusion, please designate one person to fill out the online request form.  Please fill out the form completely to ensure that your needs will be accommodated. Changes to ticket requests will be accepted through Monday, April 9.  Orders for academic attire and announcements must also be placed during Phase One.  Anyone requesting to participate after March 19 will need to borrow academic attire and will not receive name cards for announcements. 

Phase Two: Ticket Distribution  
On April 23, all tickets will be distributed at the Senior One-Stop Shop from 3 - 6 p.m. in the Robert S. Carey Student Center Gymnasium.  Since all seating will be reserved, every effort will be made to seat families together at the ceremony.

After April 23, additional tickets for satellite viewing areas only will be available for pickup in the Event and Conference Services Office, located on the second floor of the Fred M. Rogers Center.

Please direct all questions regarding Commencement ticketing to the Event and Conference Services Office at 724-532-5030.
