TICKET INFORMATION FOR ASSOCIATE, BACHELOR'S, AND MASTER'S GRADUATES

As as an associate, bachelor's, or master's degree candidate of University of Maryland University College, you don't need a ticket to participate in commencement, but tickets are required for your guests. These ceremonies will be held at the Xfinity Center, which is located at 8500 Paint Branch Drive, College Park, MD 20742, on the campus of University of Maryland, College Park. View a map of the College Park campus, and find out more about the venue.

To meet fire codes, each guest at the Xfinity Center—including infants—must have a ticket to attend. Tickets will be scanned upon entry. Each ticket is unique and will only work once. Tickets cannot be duplicated or sold. Each graduate may claim up to 12 guest tickets.

Claim Your Guest Tickets

After you RSVP for commencement, you'll use an online form to claim up to 12 electronic tickets for your guests. We encourage you to claim only the tickets you plan to use, because your unwanted tickets can be used by fellow graduates who have additional guests. The online ticket-claim form will tell you how to donate your unwanted tickets.

Remember, you must RSVP for a ceremony before you can claim your tickets. Check your registration confirmation for the link to the e-ticketing system. Tickets must be claimed by 9:29 a.m. (eastern time) on December 1.

Distribute and Use Tickets

You'll receive a confirmation e-mail after you order your tickets. Your tickets will be included as a PDF attachment that you can print and distribute. However, we prefer that you e-mail the tickets directly to your guests through the electronic ticketing system. This will allow guests to either print out the tickets to bring with them or display them on their mobile devices at the event.

Claim Extra Tickets (If Available)

We will open the unclaimed ticket pool at 9:30 a.m. (eastern time) on December 1. Log on to the e-ticketing portal just as you did to claim your initial allotment of tickets. If any tickets are available, you'll be able to claim up to four additional tickets online. Unclaimed tickets will be distributed on a first come, first-served basis.
