Because the ceremony is planned to be held outdoors on Lafayette’s Quad, no tickets are required; however, outdoor seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. If inclement weather forces the ceremony indoors, tickets will be needed for admission to the Allan P. Kirby Sports Center. Three (3) electronic tickets for family and friends are available for each graduate beginning Mon., April 3. Please review the instructions for ticketing and note that students need to log in with their Lafayette credentials to access the ticketing site. Graduates do not need a ticket. 

A limited number of additional rain site tickets were available for request starting May 1. As of May 9, those tickets are no longer available. The additional rain site tickets can be picked up at the ticket office in Kirby Sports Center on the day of Commencement, Saturday, May 20, 2023, beginning at 9 a.m.
