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.

Fall 2019 Ticketing Policy

​The bachelor's ceremony is a ticketed event. Students requested guest tickets when they submitted the required RSVP to attend the ceremony.

Due to a record-high RSVP and ticket request this fall, Georgia Tech will not have any extra tickets at will call the day of the ceremony. More information

  • Bachelor students who submitted an RSVP during the designated RSVP period will be issued up to five (5) guest tickets. 
  • Students must RSVP on time to receive the full allotment of guest tickets.
    • Late RSVPs will receive a reduced amount of tickets.
    • Children under the age of two who will be seated in a guardian's lap for the duration of the event do not require a ticket.
  • Because we will not have extra tickets at will call, we cannot offer current students, faculty, and staff a ticket for showing thier buzzcard.

Additional Tickets

Due to a record-high RSVP and ticket request this fall, Georgia Tech will not have any extra tickets at will call on the day of the ceremony.

We ticket the ceremony to make sure we do not exceed capacity, while ensuring that every graduate has the opportunity to have someone attend. Will call tickets are made available as seats remain open, and we anticipate a full venue this semester.

O'Keefe Gymnasium, located adjacent to McCamish Pavilion, is available for overflow seating and will show a live stream of the event. Tickets are not required for our overflow space. The ceremony will also be streamed live online at More ways to view the ceremony.

Additionally, the President’s Graduation Celebration on Friday, Dec. 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. allows families to celebrate together. No tickets are required for this free event, which will take place in the Student Center Ballroom.

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.
