Commencement Tickets

Georgia Tech Commencement

Georgia Tech is excited to bring commencement back to campus in the newly renovated 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 still required from graduate students to attend the ceremony.

RSVP

All Spring 2014 graduates attending Commencement are required to RSVP. Our RSVP period took place between March 3 to March 14. An RSVP is required to receive Commencement tickets and participate in the ceremony. No late RSVPs will be accepted. 

Distribution

Tickets distribution took place between March 31 through April 11. Any tickets left unclaimed at the end of the distribution period will be redistributed at will call on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Will Call

Will call is located next to the main entrance of McCamish Pavilion. Students who had their original tickets moved to will call must pick them up during their ceremony's will call period.
