Additional Tickets

Additional tickets will be made available online for each ceremony, on a first-come, first-served basis, starting at 6 pm on Monday, December 7, 2015.  All graduates can claim a maximum of 6 additional tickets at this time. This allows for an even distribution of tickets for all graduates.

To be respectful of your fellow graduates, we ask that you only claim the number of tickets that you truly need.  If you find that you have extra tickets that you will not be using, please consider returning them to the ticket office, by emailing Joanne Forrester at

All guests entering the arena will need a ticket.  This includes children of all ages. Any seating that is being held/reserved in the arena must be released 15 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony to seat other guests.

Please be advised: The sale of unused commencement tickets is strictly prohibited. Commencement tickets are allocated to each student, based on occupancy rates, and additional tickets are distributed for each college ceremony on a first-come, first-served basis. Anyone found to be selling or purchasing unused commencement tickets could face academic discipline including the loss of the privilege to participate in their graduation ceremony. The tickets are university property, therefore each ticket is a "revocable license" which the university can withdrawal at any time at its sole discretion.

Name Cards

An index card printed with your name, address, and e-mail address will be given to you when you arrive at the Student Robing area (Towson Center gymnasium). If any of the information on the front of the card is incorrect, please be sure that you make changes on the reverse of the card to ensure our records have your most current contact information.

REMINDER: Make sure to check and update your address in the Student Center at http://sa/selfservices as soon as possible to ensure your diploma is mailed to the correct address.
