Each candidate who plans to take part in the Spring 2021 commencement is guaranteed guest tickets at no charge.

Due to state and county COVID constraints, a maximum of two guest tickets to the Spring 2021 commencement ceremonies is permitted per candidate at this time. 

To request tickets, candidates need to specify the number of tickets being requested via myPurdue on the Commencement task list available Friday, February 26, 2021. 

  • Tickets will be sent to candidates via email the week of May 10.
  • Due to social distancing, all guest tickets are assigned seating.
  • All guests require a ticket.
    • Infants in arms may not require a ticket.
  • Purdue University does not offer any guest tickets for sale.

Guest tickets may not be sold. Electronic tickets are generated with a unique identifier that is traceable back to the student who requested them.

Because of this feature, they can be printed multiple times. However, only the first set of allocated tickets scanned will gain entrance. Duplicate tickets with the same bar code will be denied entrance after the first set of tickets has been scanned. Any attempt to sell or produce mass copies of electronic tickets will be considered a misuse of Purdue University property. Any and all such misuse of Purdue University property would result in the conduct being reported to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, which may ultimately result in disciplinary action, on a case-by-case basis, and as deemed appropriate. Additionally, upon notification of or the receipt of information related to a student's misuse of allocated tickets, the Office of the Registrar reserves the right to reallocate any and all such tickets to other students.

Please let us know if you or your guests require accessibility assistance.
