College Commencement

Commencement Tickets

Weather permitting, Commencement will be held outdoors at Griswold Stadium. Ticket count for Griswold Stadium will be determined based on the number of graduating seniors.

Seats may not be reserved early in either the Griswold Stadium OR Pamplin Sports Center. Any personal belongings left on seats before the commencement ceremony will be immediately removed and given to Campus Safety.

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
