There is a ticket requirement for guests to attend Commencement ceremonies. Tickets are free of charge, unique to each college ceremony, and only valid at the Commencement ceremony listed on the ticket. Graduates do not need tickets for themselves. Children under age 3 who will sit on a guardian's lap during the ceremony do not require a ticket.
For 2018 Spring Commencement ceremonies, graduates can claim up to nine guest tickets. All students eligible to graduate can claim their guest tickets by logging into MySacState and clicking the Commencement Tickets link under the Academics section of their Student Center.
Please note: Students who have petitioned to participate in the Spring 2018 Commencement ceremonies will be contacted via email if and/or when they are granted access to claim guest tickets. This email will also contain special instructions on how approved petitioners can claim tickets.
The deadline to claim your initial nine tickets is April 25. If you don’t claim your tickets by the deadline, you may not have access to your full allotment of nine tickets.
If extra tickets are available after the first offering, a second offering will be announced the first week of May. However, if all tickets for your ceremony are claimed in the initial release period, your college may not have extra. You may exchange tickets only with peers who are participating in the same ceremony. Please note that tickets may not be sold or traded for anything of monetary value.
The University will live-stream each ceremony so family and friends can view their graduate’s recognition from anywhere. On May 18 and 19, visit csus.edu/commencement to access the feed.
