Dear Class of 2021,

Four weeks and counting!  This is the week you and the two individuals who will be attending your Commencement on campus have been waiting for – the Commencement Ticketing Survey System is now OPEN! Members of the Class of 2021 do not require a ticket.

Please have the following information available prior to starting the survey:

  • Graduate Name, Email, Phone
  • Guest 1 Name, Email, Phone, relationship to you*
  • Guest 2 Name, Email, Phone, relationship to you*
  • Number of grab and go post-Commencement boxed lunches requested (up to 3)
  • Dietary restrictions

* Guest names and contact information are required for contact tracing purposes. 

Upon completion of the survey, if you indicate you plan to attend Commencement, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to select your two guest seats. To reserve your two guest tickets, follow these instructions:

  • Click on the link provided in your survey confirmation email.
  • Sign in with your Lafayette credential.
  •  Enter the number of tickets needed (maximum is 2).
  •  Select the section (sections 2-9 are available) for your two seats.**
  • Your ticket will default to an E-ticket. E-Tickets are non-transferable or exchangeable.
  • Proceed to checkout (tickets are complimentary).
  •  Download or print your E-ticket to enter the stadium.
  • Forward the confirmation email you receive to each of your two guests. Guests will be required to show the E-Ticket or a printed ticket to enter Fisher Stadium.

** Each graduation candidate can select up to two seats for their guests.  While it is ideal to have both guests seated together, if necessary, you do have the opportunity to select one seat in one pod and one seat in a second pod. If there is only one seat selected in a pod, the adjacent seat will be removed by the Ticketing Staff so there are not two guests from two different graduate families/friends seated in the same pod.

You are now ready to complete the Commencement Ticketing Survey

Ticketing Reminders

  • The Commencement ceremony is limited to two guests per graduate provided Pennsylvania guidelines continue to support such capacity for outdoor events.
  • Members of the Class of 2021 do not require a ticket.
  • By completing the ticketing survey you acknowledge you and your guests are committing to following the College’s Commencement COVID policies.
  • E-Tickets are required for the entry of each guest into the Stadium.
  • Only you (the Lafayette Student) can enter the system to select your guest’s seats.
  • There will be no additional tickets offered beyond the allotted two guest tickets per graduate. The decision of our guest capacity is driven by our commitment to provide appropriate physical space distancing that will ensure comfort for all attendees. Commencement will be live streamed for those who are not attending in-person. The live stream link will be available on the College’s homepage the morning of Commencement.
  • There will be no overflow seating for non-ticketed guests or any indoor seating available.

Upon reviewing the information in this communication and on the Commencement website, if you have additional questions, please call 610-330-5200 or email the President’s Office.
