PASS & TICKETS
Before you can order your commencement pass and electronic guest tickets, remember that you must have successfully applied for Summer 2013 graduation through my.fiu.edu.
What's the pass for?
The commencement pass is your complimentary ticket to the ceremony and will grant access to the U.S. Century Bank Arena. It also contains a unique bar code which enables us to display your name on large screens (so please do not fold it, put it through the washer, or have your dog chew on it!).
How do I order it?
By confirming your attendance at commencement via my.fiu.edu. Step-by-step ordering info is posted below under READY, SET, GO!
How do I obtain it?
You must pick it up in person during one of our Commencement Fairs. Please bring your photo ID (driver’s license, FIU OneCard etc.) to claim it.
What if I cannot pick it up in person?
Someone else may pick up your pass for you. To claim your pass, that person must provide a letter of authorization from you and a copy of your ID number along with a copy of his/her own ID.
How many do I get?
You will receive two (2) complimentary guest tickets. You may purchase an additional five (5) guest tickets at $5.00 each for a total of seven (7) guest tickets. Should we have extra capacity of guest tickets available, we will notify graduates at their FIU e-mail address. One ticket per guest. Each ticket carries a unique bar code which will be scanned at the entrance.
How do I obtain my electronic guest tickets?
You order your electronic guest tickets together with your pass online through my.fiu.edu. Follow the READY, SET, GO! below. Tickets are e-tickets that will be posted as a PDF file to your my.fiu.edu. Print the tickets or simply e-mail them to your guests before the event.
How do I pay for additional electronic guest tickets?
Payment is accepted by debit or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discover).
Does a 5-month old baby need a ticket?
Yes. Fire Marshall regulations require every guest, including children of any age, to have a ticket for entry to the U.S. Century Bank Arena. So even a baby that could sit on someone's lap must have a ticket.
