To ensure everyone can fit comfortably and safely in the Main Campus Auditorium, we must place a limit on the number of tickets each student receives.

Each graduating student will receive five tickets.

Unfortunately, no. The maximum each student can receive is five to ensure everyone can fit comfortably in the Main Campus Auditorium.

After you fill out the UMass Law 2024 Commencement Ceremony Ticket Registration Form, the email address you enter for each guest will receive a ticket with a unique check-in code that will be used at check-in. If the person who received the ticket can no longer attend, they can forward the ticket to someone else to use. The name of the individual on the ticket does not matter, only the unique check-in code for each ticket.

If you have already filled out the UMass Law 2024 Commencement Ceremony Ticket Registration Form for all five tickets, please see the FAQ above: “What if I need to change who is using the ticket?” If you have remaining tickets, please email commencement.info@umassd.edu with the names and email addresses of where you would like your additional tickets to go.

If so, you can enter your email address for each ticket. You will then receive the five tickets at your email address to forward to your guests. The name of the individual on the ticket does not matter, only the unique check-in code for each ticket.

Absolutely. Graduating students can forward tickets they don’t intend to use to their classmates to use for their guests. The name of the individual on the ticket does not matter, only the unique check-in code for each ticket.
