With Winter Commencement approaching for the University of Arizona, December graduates participating in the ceremony are invited to RSVP for themselves and their guests. 

The University-wide ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 17 at 9:30 a.m. in McKale Memorial Center. Other details are available on the commencement website.

Because the University wants to maximize the number of seats available for guests, students are encouraged to RSVP online.

"The University has had an increased number of students attending commencement ceremonies, so it is important for us to give all those who plan to attend every opportunity to secure seats in McKale," said Christine Salvesen, director or Academic Success & Achievement.

"We think that asking our graduates to RSVP online and providing convenient locations for ticket pick up will make it easier for all who wish to join us in this celebration."

The RSVP system will provide the Commencement Operations Team an estimate of the number of students attending, as well as the number of guests each student plans to bring.  

During the last week of classes, Dec. 5-9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., students participating in the ceremony will be able to pick up tickets and other commencement related instructions. 

Once soon-to-be graduates have RSVPed, tickets can be picked up at the following convenient and accessible campus locations: 

  • Associated Students of the University of Arizona office, located in the Student Union Memorial Center
  • UA Main BookStore
  • UA Visitor Center, 811 N. Euclid Ave.

Every student who wishes to participate in the ceremony will receive a ticket. 

Tickets are for students only. Guests will not need tickets; seating will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
