In order to comply with fire and safety regulations, admission to the 2019 Saint Vincent College December Commencement ceremony will be by ticket only. A ticketing system has been devised and is listed below:

Online Commencement Form

All graduates participating in the commencement ceremony are required to complete the online commencement form, which will be available at between Monday, Oct. 7, and Monday, Oct. 28. 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 (limit 4 tickets per graduate in the PAC)
  • Confirm attendance at commencement and reception
  • Order academic attire
  • Order name cards and announcements
  • Confirm phonetic spelling of name to be read at ceremony
  • Confirm major/s for listing in program
  • Request special needs passes and tickets

Students in Procession

Phase One:  Oct. 7 – Oct. 28, 2019

All degree candidates who have applied for graduation through the Registrar's office may fill out the online request form to reserve their tickets between Oct. 7 and Oct. 28. There is a limit of 4 tickets per graduate in the Performing Arts Center. Limited seating will be available in the Carey Student Center Lounge overflow area. To avoid confusion, please designate one person to fill out the online form. Please fill out the form completely to ensure that your needs will be accommodated. Reservations will also be taken for the reception following the ceremony, to be held in the Carey Student Center Gymnasium. Graduates do not need tickets for either event. Changes to ticket orders may be made until Friday, Nov. 15; however, the academic attire order will be placed on Oct. 29.  No changes or additions will be able to be made after this date.


Phase Two: Ticket Distribution

Beginning Dec. 2, tickets will be available for pickup in the Event and Conference Services Office. Since all seating will be reserved, every effort will be made to seat families together.

After Dec. 2, additional tickets will be available in the Event and Conference Services Office, located on the second floor of the Fred M. Rogers Center. Please call in advance to check availability.

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