College Commencement

Commencement Tickets

Weather permitting, Commencement will be held outdoors at Griswold Stadium. Because adequate seating is available at Griswold, no tickets are required for admission to Griswold Stadium.

Each graduating senior will receive an allocation of two (2) complimentary tickets for Pamplin Sports Center in the event of inclement weather. (General seating only). The numbers printed on the tickets indicate the total number of tickets, not a seat number.

The decision regarding ceremony venue is made as early in the Commencement Weekend as possible and communicated to graduating seniors via listserv as well as Commencement and College web sites.

Commencement tickets will be available when you pick up your cap and gown in May.

If the ceremony is held in Pamplin Sports Center, non-ticketed guests will be seated in Agnes Flanagan Chapel for the ceremony simulcast.  The ceremony will also be web cast live at no cost at the College‚Äôs main page.

If anyone in your party needs special accommodations for seating, please email
