Ticket Distribution

Graduating Students can claim both graduate and guest tickets online:

  • Ticket Distribution/Requests will begin in April

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 claimed 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.

Undergraduate degree recipients are eligible for up to 10 guest tickets.
Graduate/professional degree recipients are eligible for up to 6 guest tickets.

Guest seating assignments are grouped together and generated randomly. Early ticketing does 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.
