Commencement Tickets

Georgia Tech Commencement

Spring 2015 Ticketing Policy

Georgia Tech is excited to host the Commencement ceremonies in McCamish Pavilion. Due to capacity limitations, Georgia Tech will issue general admission tickets to the event. Undergraduates will be issued six guest tickets. The Ph.D. and Master's ceremony will not be ticketed. An RSVP is required from both graduate and undergraduate students to attend and participate in the ceremony.  Please contact events@comm.gatech.edu with any questions.

RSVP

Students must have an RSVP to participate in the ceremony. The spring RSVP period will take place February 23 to March 13. Students who did not submit an RSVP may arrive at Commencement one hour prior to their ceremony start and will be seated as room allows. We will do our best to accommodate all students.

Ticket Distribution

Students who submit an RSVP will be able to pick up their tickets from March 30 to April 10 at the Athletics Ticket Box Office, located off of Bobby Dodd Way. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for Commencement tickets. 

Failure to pick up your tickets will result in forfeit at the end of the distribution period. Students who are not on campus may select will call to receive their tickets at McCamish Pavilion the day of the ceremony. Students also have the option of sending a delegate to receive their tickets on their behalf. 

Will Call

Will call is located next to the main entrance of McCamish Pavilion. During the RSVP period, students may choose to have their tickets moved to will call. You must select will call for your tickets to move. 

Students who had their original tickets moved to will call may receive them the two hours prior to their ceremony. The student or their delegate must present the graduating student's name and Georgia Tech ID number to receive their reserved tickets. Any additional tickets available for the ceremony will also be distributed at will call. 

The box office is unable to accommodate a split pick-up; all tickets for a group must be collected by one individual, who will be responsible for ensuring all guests receive their tickets. Tickets can not be left at will call. Please coordinate with your party to have someone distribute your tickets. 

Any tickets remaining when will call closes, reserved or unreserved, will be forfeited.
