How do I obtain tickets for Commencement?
The Commencement ceremony is limited to three 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. There will be no additional tickets offered beyond the allotted three guest tickets per graduate. The decision of our guest capacity is driven by our commitment to provide appropriate physical space distancing and site lines for guests throughout the Stadium. Tickets are required for the entry of each guest into the Stadium.

How do I order a yearbook, schedule or submit a senior class photo?
All students on campus should have received a personal email from Lors Photography to have a personal photo session with the photographers. Students who are not on campus will have the opportunity to submit photos to the yearbook as well. There will be an online submission process starting in May. Students who have not taken a senior portrait on campus will receive an email from the company called Balfour. The email will contain a person-specific link with instructions on how to submit a portrait to the yearbook. Submissions will be due by mid-June so if students want to wait to take a photo with their regalia, it is okay to wait until you have these items in hand.
