Information on Graduation Ticketing:

All graduation ticket requests are to be made through an onCampus Form which can be accessed by clicking the yellow bar at the top of your senior’s onCampus account BEGINNING THURSDAY, MARCH 24TH AT 5:00 PM and CLOSING MONDAY, APRIL 4TH at 8:00 AM.

This ticket request form can only be submitted once. By completing this form, the student agrees to take into consideration members in his/her household(s) as well as any extended family or friends.

This form is for the May 14th Graduation only. At this time no tickets will be required for the Baccalaureate ceremony on May 13th. However, this is subject to change.

Each graduate is guaranteed up to 10 tickets for graduation and every effort will be made to fulfill requests for additional tickets. If the form is not completed by April 4th at 8:00 a.m., the student will receive ten tickets. There will be no requests for additional tickets after the April 4th deadline. Families will be notified by mid-April about the number of tickets your family will receive, and tickets will be distributed the first week of May. 

PLEASE BE ADVISED: In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved indoors to the Scott Center for Worship and the Performing Arts. This will affect the number of tickets each family receives. If inclement weather seems likely, a decision will be made the week of graduation and further details will be communicated to senior families. 

Please continue to watch your emails for additional information regarding other senior celebrations. 

We look forward to celebrating this exciting milestone with you and your families!
