    • Tell us whether you are attending your ceremony;
    • Complete the Career Development Center (CDC) Survey;
    • Update your Lifetime Engagement Information; then ...
  • Undergraduates: The Ticketing site is open. You may request up to 4 guest tickets. There is no charge for tickets. Tickets may be requested ONLY after you complete the tasks listed above. All ticketing requests must be completed by April 24, 2023 @ 11:59 pm. The site will close at midnight. After April 24, if additional tickets are available, we will announce and conduct a lottery for up to 2 additional tickets. Successful applicants will be notified directly.
