As a graduating student of West Chester University, you don't need a ticket to participate in commencement, but tickets are required for your guests including children three (3) years of age or older.

Each graduate will receive up to four (4) tickets to their specific commencement ceremony. When you order your cap and gown, you will be asked to select how many tickets you need, ranging from 0 - 4. Because of space constraints at Hollinger Fieldhouse, the University cannot provide graduates with more than four guest tickets. No exceptions can be made.

You will have from October 9 - November 22 to request tickets. After November 22,  requests for tickets should be made at the SSI Ticket Window (Lower Level Sykes Student Union).

Check your email and myWCU for further ticket notifications and instructions.

Graduates and guests are advised that commencement tickets are University property and the sale and/or copying of commencement tickets is strictly prohibited.
