Am I eligible to graduate?

If you have applied to graduate for Fall 2021, Winter 2022, Spring 2022, Summer 2022 or Fall 2022 (before the published deadlines), you will be eligible to participate in the 2022 ceremonies and your name will be listed in the program.

The deadline to complete the application to graduate was March 1. If you applied to graduate after March 1, you can participate in the ceremonies, but your name will not be listed in the Graduate Recognition program.

How many tickets will each graduate receive and how can they claim them?

Graduates will be allotted a maximum of ten (10) guest ceremony tickets to enter the stadium. The tickets are free, we do not sell additional tickets and have no knowledge about the sales of extra tickets.

Parking is free at the stadium, no passes required.

On May 9th, 7AM, your unique, individual ticket code will be available when you login to single sign-on and access the Graduate Ticket tile. Those without access to single sign-on will receive it separately through your email. If a printed ticket is required, you or your guests will need to bring the ticket confirmation to the check-in at the stadium, where guests will be directed to a ticket window to claim their printed ticket/s.

*Please note: You MUST CLAIM ALL TEN TICKETS IN ONE TRANSACTION. You cannot log out then log back in and reuse the code to claim another set/amount of tickets in separate processes. The code is for ONE TIME ONLY Single use.

You and your guests will need to download the MLB Ballpark App and create an account to access the tickets. Please read these ticket redemption instructions (PDF) and follow this tutorial (PDF) for accessing and forwarding tickets to your guests and how to use the MLB Ballpark App & ticket barcode to enter the stadium.


Your GradPass is your ticket to enter the stadium when you arrive on your ceremony day. Every graduate who wishes to participate in the ceremony MUST have a GradPass. If you do not have one in MarchingOrder, please come to the MarchingOrder check-in table at the Home Plate pad at least 60 minutes before the ceremony to pick one up. Please have ticket confirmation ready to show you are a graduate at the correct ceremony.

Am I able to get extra tickets?

No. There will be no extra tickets given out and graduates will only receive their 10 ceremony tickets.
