TICKETED EVENT

58 days, 23 hours, 10 minutes, and 24 seconds

Important Graduate Ticket Update
The University has expanded floor space and will allot first-time baccalaureate students 8 tickets.

The Spring Commencement Exercise will be held Saturday, May 4 at 8:30 a.m. in the Davey L. Whitney HPER Complex on the Lorman campus.

Prospective graduates must place orders for their cap and gown online at www.alcorn.edu/commencement. To pick up your regalia, and participate in Commencement, you must be cleared by selected institutional offices.

Students meeting all degree requirements without holds are considered clear for graduation. Bursar, Financial Aid, Housing, Library, Campus Police, Student Affairs, etc. will review the graduation list and affix graduation holds on any degree candidate with unresolved fines, fees, or holds. No student will graduate or receive a degree/transcript with a hold on the student’s account. "Only those students who have completed all requirements for their degree will be allowed to participate in the commencement ceremony."

Graduate students will receive six (6) and first-time baccalaureate students will receive eight (8) tickets for their guest. Guests tickets will be issued to graduating seniors during cap and gown pickup. The ticket allotment helps accommodate Alcorn's growing graduating class without exceeding occupancy limits and code-restrictions of the Whitney Complex. While only persons with tickets may enter Whitney, overflow spaces are available for non-ticket bearing attendees. [Note: Faculty and students with regalia will have identified doors of entry into Whitney. Only ticket-bearing guests will enter through the front doors.]

Overflow seating will be available in the Ray Johnson Auditorium and the James L. Bolden Campus Union Ballroom on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to capacity. Guests will be able to watch the Commencement ceremony Streamed LIVE at each location, or from their mobile or electronic device(s). However, you are encouraged to arrive early in order to secure a place in the designated locations.

The Commencement link will be used as your resources page for upcoming details in regard to the commencement ceremonies. We invite you to apply for admission to graduate and/or professional school(s) and especially Alcorn State University Graduate Programs.
