Special Needs Ticketing

  • Graduating seniors with family or friends attending Commencement with special needs should contact the Commencement Coordinator by completing the online form below.
  • Special needs seating will be available in the Oregon Convention Center with limited/zero stairs. There are also elevators if needed.
  • The entire family will be allowed to enter with the member who is needing early entry.  However, in order to keep seats available for other families we will need to split the family into 2 rows.
