Countdown to University Commencement - 20 days


The ticketing link for the ceremonies scheduled at TDECU Stadium will go live by the end of the month and will be published in the Grad Chronicle.  To maintain equity with all the graduates and keep the safety guidelines established by the venues, the following rules will be observed:

  • Each graduate will need a ticket to enter into TDECU Stadium.
  • Each graduate will be allowed up to four (4) guest tickets - no exceptions.
  • All guests, regardless of age, will need a ticket.  This includes infants and lap children.
  • Once a ticket bar code is scanned at the venue entrance, duplicate bar codes will not be valid.
  • You will need your People Soft number to access the ticket link.

If your commencement ceremony is being held at Cullen Performance Hall, please contact your college coordinator for ticketing information.

Remember the commencement ceremonies will be live streamed so those not able to attend can still share in the experience. The ceremony links will remain available for future viewing.


If one or more of your guests has an impairment, special seating can be arranged for them.  Please follow the instructions below to make sure your guests are taken care of:

  • Make your ADA reservation request for special seating by sending an email to
  • Please state the name(s) of the guests requiring special accommodations, the ceremony they will be attending and the nature of the impairment (mobility, hearing, sight) so we know where to place your guests.

  • Persons who have special seating reservations will need admission tickets, too. The tickets will come from the allotment that each graduate candidate receives.
