Orlando Campus Students

Orlando campus students do not order tickets; tickets are picked up during the ticket-pickup window at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore @ UCF located next to the CFE Arena. A photo ID will be required for pick-up.

Doctoral candidates and top honor graduates must pick up tickets with the official academic regalia at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore @ UCF near the CFE Arena. They may obtain reserved seating for their guests by bringing their tickets to the Office of Constituent Relations (Millican Hall, Room 396) during ticket pick up week for a reserved seating stamp. Order of Pegasus graduates must pick up their tickets directly from the Office of Constituent Relations. Questions may be directed to the Office of Constituent Relations at (407) 823-3802.

Regional Campus Students

Regional campus candidates will order and pick up tickets at their area campus (Daytona Beach, Palm Bay, and Cocoa only). Daytona Beach candidates should contact the Administrative Services Office for pickup; Cocoa and Palm Bay campus candidates should contact the BCC Bookstore. If a candidate from a regional campus misses the order period, the tickets will remain at the Orlando campus for pick-up until the end of the pick-up period. Students from all other regional campuses must pick up tickets at the Orlando campus. Note: Rosen College of Hospitality Management guest tickets will be available at the Rosen College Bookstore.

Extra Tickets

Candidates can request extra tickets through the Commencement Ticket Lottery, which is found under 'Other Academic…' within the myUCF Student Center during normal ticket pick-up times. Extra tickets are not guaranteed.

Up to five (5) extra Commencement guest tickets may be requested by participating graduates who have an Intent to Graduate approved by the college of the student's major by the withdrawal deadline of the current term. Lottery results will be emailed to the student's campus email address after the normal ticket pick-up window. Winners of extra tickets will need to claim their tickets in person at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore @ UCF. Any forfeited tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis at the CFE Arena box office prior to each Commencement ceremony.

Unable to Pick Up Tickets

Candidates unable to pick up tickets (regular or extra) may designate a third party to do so by providing them with a letter authorizing UCF to release the tickets during the appropriate times listed above. Letters must include name of person designated to pick up the tickets, the candidate’s name, PID, college of major and signature, and must be presented at the time of ticket pick up along with a copy of the student's photo ID.

Simulcast Locations

Guests who do not have tickets for CFE Arena seating will have the opportunity to view a live telecast of the ceremony via closed circuit television at the Fairwinds Alumni Center, the Student Union and on Campus Cable Channel 21. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The sign language interpreter is visible on the live telecast screen. The simulcast viewing is not closed captioned.
