Happy graduates with balloons

Georgia Tech is delighted to host the Commencement ceremonies in McCamish Pavilion.
Due to capacity limitations, Georgia Tech will issue general admission tickets to the Saturday ceremony.

Updates Coming Soon

We are working on finalizing our information for the Fall 2019 ceremonies. Please return after September 4 for updated information and ticketing allotments. Graduating students will also receive an email when the information is posted.

Spring 2019 Ticketing Policy

  • Bachelor students who submitted an RSVP during the designated RSVP period will be issued five guest tickets. 
    • Children under the age of two who can sit on a parent's lap for the ceremony do not need a ticket.
    • Tickets are only valid for their listed ceremony; e.g. morning ceremony tickets cannot be used for the afternoon ceremony.
    • Late RSVPs will receive a reduced amount of tickets.
  • Current students, faculty, and staff wishing to attend the event as a guest may show their buzzcard at will call the day of the event to receive 1 guest ticket.
    • Day-of tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
    • These tickets may not be reserved in advance.
    • We encourage interested faculty and staff to speak with their dean's office to volunteer for the event to guarantee a seat. 
  • No tickets are required for guests to attend the Ph.D. ceremony or the Master's ceremony. An RSVP is still required to participate.

RSVP to Commencement

An RSVP is required to attend the ceremony. For bachelor's students, this is also where they will request guest tickets. We will publish Fall dates at semester start.

We will email students when our RSVP page opens in September.

Ticket Distribution

  • Ticket Distribution will take place late October at the Athletics Ticket Box Office, located off Bobby Dodd Way.
    • The Ticket Office is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. 
    • Students must show their buzzcard to receive their Commencement tickets. An RSVP is required to receive guest tickets.
  • Tickets are only required for guests for the bachelor's ceremony.
  • Students also have the option of sending a delegate to receive their tickets on their behalf. Delegates must present the completed delegate form to receive tickets for another student.

Will Call

What is Will Call?
  • Students who are unable to visit the box office during ticket distribution may pick up their tickets at will call the day of the ceremony.

How to Designate Will Call as Your Pick-Up Location:
  • Any tickets not picked up during distribution will automatically roll to will call and be reserved in the student's name. Students do not need to designate their tickets to will call like they have in previous semesters.

How to Pick Up Tickets:
  • Will Call is located at McCamish Pavilion, next to the main entrance the day of the ceremony.
  • Will Call opens at the venue two hours prior to their ceremony.
    • Bachelor’s ceremony Will Call: 7-8:45 a.m.
  • Any tickets remaining when Will Call closes, reserved or unreserved, will be forfeited.​
  • The student or their ticket delegate must present the graduating student’s name and Georgia Tech ID number to receive their reserved tickets. 
  • The box office is unable to accommodate a split pick-up.
  • Tickets cannot be left at Will Call. Please coordinate with your party to have someone distribute your tickets.

Additional Tickets

  • Any additional tickets available will be at will call the day of the ceremony only. The Commencement Office is unable to distribute any additional tickets outside of this time frame.
  • Faculty, staff, and current students who would like to attend the bachelor’s ceremony may request a ticket on a first-come, first-served basis at Will Call. Individuals must show their valid Buzzcard to receive tickets.

Other Ceremony Viewing Options

If we run out of room at the venue, or if your guests can’t travel to the ceremony, they can still watch you walk across the stage.
