Do I need tickets for my guests?

Yes! We are happy to say we've increased the ticket allotment to 8 for the Spring 2023 ceremonies.

Guest tickets will only be available electronically via Marching Order!

Warning: Each ticket will have its own unique scanning pattern. Once a ticket has been scanned, it is no longer usable. Duplicate tickets are invalid. An electronic or hard copy of the guest tickets must be presented for entrance into the college graduation ceremony.

How do I access my tickets?

Log into your student portal to access MarchingOrder (the process is the same as when you logged in to register) Open your MarchingOrder registration page and scroll all the way down to the bottom to claim your 8 tickets. You will then have the option to email or print your guest tickets. You will be able to access and email or print your tickets up until your ceremony start time.

Do children need tickets?

Yes, all children over the age of 2 require a ticket.

What if I have more than 8 people who want to watch me cross the stage?

We are not able to allot more than 8 tickets per graduate but we have thought about your additional guests. All ceremonies will be livestreamed. The livestream links will be on the Commencement website 2 hours prior to the ceremony start time. The recorded ceremonies will remain on the Commencement website through Summer 2023 for playback.

Can I purchase additional guest tickets?

No, each grad is allotted 8 complimentary tickets. CSUF will not be selling additional tickets. Should you have a classmate who does not need all 8 of their tickets they can email the tickets to you for your use. Make sure your classmate is participating in the same ceremony you are. Each ticket has a unique QR code and can only be used for the ceremony it is assigned to.
