Each convocation ceremony guest must present a valid ticket in order to enter the convocation grounds. Children under the age of three (3) do not require a guest ticket, provided they are accompanied by an adult and will share that person's seat, i.e. sit on their lap. Each ticket is unique and will only admit one.

The Convocation Pavilion will be open for seating approximately 90 minutes prior to each ceremony. There is no reserved seating and seats are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

Accessible seating is available upon request; graduands are required to note the special seating requirements of their guests when submitting their RSVP.

Graduates and their guests are invited and encouraged to attend their Faculty reception. The exact location of Faculty receptions will be in the convocation program.
