Tickets are required for every guest attending this event, with the exclusion of children under one. Guests must have their tickets in hand, either printed or on their phones, to enter the ceremony. You will need the actual ticket, not the confirmation email. If you are unable to open the print ticket link in your confirmation email, please forward that confirmation to the College of Education Events Coordinator by 3 p.m on Thursday, May 17th. There are no more guest tickets available.
