Ceremonies Requiring Tickets
While the Main Commencement Ceremony does not require tickets for admission, tickets are required for some college ceremonies. For ceremonies requiring tickets, students will be given complimentary tickets from their college. Children over the age of two need a ticket.
What If It Rains?
You’ll need tickets for the Main Commencement Ceremony, which will be held at the Ryan Center. Rain tickets are available at the Ryan Center beginning April 14.
If you’ve previously purchased tickets to any Ryan Center event online, log in to the Ryan Center using your Student ID and password. If this will be your first time purchasing Ryan Center tickets, you will need to register. Rain site tickets will be available online through your Ryan Center account or at the Center, 1 Lincoln Almond Plaza. Call the Ryan Center Box Office at 401.874.RAMS for more information. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through May 1. After May 1, the box office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
