Pass & Guest Tickets

Commencement Pass

Students (with the exception of PhD/EdD/DBA) will receive their Commencement Pass at the Commencement Fairs.

The University Graduate School manages passes and commencement details for PhD/EdD/DBA candidates, and will communicate with them directly.

Please check out the Commencement Fair tab for the full schedule.

As a reminder:

  • Student must pick up their commencement pass during the C-Fair dates
  • The Commencement Pass acts as the ticket for the graduate
  • You will need it for the entry to your ceremony
  • We are unable to email you your Commencement Pass
  • Make sure you have confirmed your attendance prior to attending C-Fair

Guest Tickets 

Each graduate will be eligible to select up to 2 complimentary tickets and purchase up to 3 additional guest tickets for $15 each, for a total of 5 tickets. A ticket is needed for every individual regardless of age (babies, toddlers and small children still need a ticket).

Please note securing your 2 complimentary tickets does NOT automatically secure your 3 additional tickets for purchase.

It is important to note that all registrations and ticket transactions are final. (NON REFUNDABLE)
Please note all tickets are non- transferable. 

Guest tickets are only accessible through your MyFIU portal. These are not distributed at C-Fairs.

  • If you haven’t obtained ALL 5 guest tickets and choose to purchase your remaining ones, you can still do so during the registration period.
  • After the registration period ENDS you will still be able to purchase tickets sold at the box office on a first-come, first-served basis, while available on the day of the ceremony. However, tickets are limited.
  • Please keep in mind there is a possibility for ceremonies to be sold out and not have ANY available tickets on the day of the ceremony.
  • If your ceremony did not sell out, then the day of your ceremony the box office will sell additional tickets on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are $15 each and are CASH only. Please note, there may or may not be tickets available.
  • Tickets are downloaded and printed through your FIU portal. Every single person attending must have a ticket, regardless of age.

We look forward to celebrating you at all of our Commencement Events this semester!
