Ticket Distribution

Students can request both graduate and guest tickets online:

  • Monday, April 9, 10:00 a.m. through Friday, April 28, 12:00 p.m.

Through the online ticket distribution process you will be able to have guest seats assigned for your party, and also be sent a graduate ticket. Tickets redeemed online MUST be printed and each person is required to carry their own ticket, including your graduate ticket.

To complete the online process you will need to have your student UMID.

Bachelor’s degree recipients are eligible for up to 10 guest tickets.  Graduate/professional degree recipients are eligible for up to 6 guest tickets.

Seating assignments are generated randomly whether redeemed in person or online and early arrival will not guarantee preferred seats.

Please note: even if students do not intend to request or use their guest tickets, they must have a graduate ticket in order to participate in Spring Commencement.


Please call the Michigan Union Ticket Office at (734) 763-8587 if you encounter issues with the online ticket process once it becomes available on April 9th, 2018.
