Ticket Information - Updated April 25, 2016

Due to the size of the graduating class and the seating capacity at Oakdale Theatre, students will only receive the number of tickets they requested (maximum of four) when completing the Commencement Participation Form (Graduating students do not need a ticket).

At this time, additional guest tickets are not available. When completing the Participation Form, students were able to place their name on a waiting list for one additional guest ticket, in the event additional tickets become available. Those students will be notified in early May.
