Convocation tickets for guests

Each member of the Class of 2024 will have four reserved guest tickets (free!) for their Convocation ceremony. Graduating students do not require tickets to attend their own graduation ceremony.

Tickets can be picked up during Convocation Weekend when collecting gown rental.


What if my student can't pick up the tickets in time? If special circumstances prevent your student from picking up reserved tickets, please e-mail or call (506) 364-2269. Otherwise any tickets not picked up by 4 p.m. on Sunday will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis at Convocation Hall on Convocation Day.

Can my student have more than four tickets? The application to request extra tickets opens April 1, 2024.
