  • After going through the security checkpoint, graduates will be directed to their seat on the field and remain socially distanced throughout the ceremony.
  • Tickets are required for guest entry, and doors will open approximately one hour before the ceremony begins. See more about guest tickets below.
  • Ticketed guests should allow plenty of time to find your assigned seat and maintain your distance from others as you move about the stadium.

Graduates who have registered for commencement can claim up to eight guest tickets through their OSU athletic ticket account manager April 19-30, and are responsible for distributing the tickets to their guests. The graduate’s individual ticket for entry to the stadium is in addition to their eight guest tickets.
