Commencement Pass

This is a unique pass that contains your information so that your name will be displayed as you walk across stage on commencement day. You must keep your pass in hand during the ceremony from when you enter the convocation center to when you walk up onstage. Keep your pass in a safe place to ensure it won't get lost or damaged.

Guest Tickets

Upon confirming your attendance, graduates receive 2 complimentary guest tickets, and can purchase up to an additional 5 tickets at $7 each for a total of 7 tickets per graduate. As you order your tickets, keep in mind:

  • Ticket quantities are limited, and are on a first-come, first-served basis
  • A single ticket may only be used by 1 guest, regardless of age
  • Tickets are non-transferable
  • Children of any age, including infants, must have their own ticket (as required per fire code regulation)
  • Tickets are non-refundable
  • Lost tickets can be replaced by reprinting them from MyFIU
