Auburn University is excited to celebrate our graduates and welcome families and other guests to our institution's commencement ceremonies. To ensure the university adheres to venue capacity inside Neville Arena, Auburn will allot graduating students a limited number of free tickets for all commencement ceremonies beginning fall 2023. Ticketing Auburn's ceremonies ensures all graduates have the option of guests attending and prevents guests from being denied entry due to capacity constraints.
University-issued tickets are required for (1) all graduates seated on the Arena floor/walking and (2) all guests seated in the stands (all attendees must have a ticket, regardless of age).
Students registered to graduate can receive a set number of guest tickets based on anticipated ceremony size and venue capacity.
Spring semester graduates may request a limited number of additional tickets (in addition to the allotted number of tickets) based on availability; however, additional ticket requests are not guaranteed. Guest ticket allocation for the upcoming commencement ceremonies is as follows:
|Ceremony||Allotted Number of Guest Tickets|
|Fall 2023 Commencement (December)||Nine guest tickets per graduate.|
|Spring 2024 Commencement (May)||Six guest tickets per graduate. This does not include the graduate ticket.
Graduates may request (but are not guaranteed) up to two additional tickets.*
Monday’s ceremonies for the Harrison College of Pharmacy and the College of Veterinary Medicine will not be ticketed at this time.
|Summer 2024 Commencement (August)||No limit on the number of guest tickets requested. (Graduates must still register for tickets).|
* The granting of additional tickets is based on demand and capacity. Graduates will be notified after commencement ticket registration closes.
The number of tickets allotted per graduate for ceremonies after 2024 may change based on the expected number of graduates and anticipated ceremony sizes.
