Claiming tickets for the spring 2020 ceremony

Each graduate will be eligible for up to five free guest tickets. Seating in the Alaska Airlines Center is limited. Please be mindful of fellow classmates when claiming tickets. If you do not need all five tickets, please claim only the number you need. It is our goal for everyone to have the opportunity to celebrate their academic achievement with friends and family.

Students who have applied for spring graduation will receive an email approx. two months prior to the ceremony with instructions for how to RSVP on the commencement website and claim guest tickets for commencement at the campus bookstore.

Beware of ticket scalpers! Anyone offering money for your commencement tickets, or trying to sell you additional tickets, is not authorized by UAA and tickets offered by such individuals are not guaranteed entry to the ceremony.
