Before graduates pick up Commencement tickets they will need to receive their name cards from the registrar’s office. Each graduate will then bring their Name card to the box office and receive their Commencement. Graduates who are academically and financially cleared from the Registrar’s office will be able to pick up Commencement tickets at the PAC Box Office beginning Monday May 1st from 10:00am – 4:00pm.
