Commencement Tickets for Guests
For the May 8 ceremony, graduates will receive ten (10) tickets for their guests.
These tickets will be distributed by text message using the cell phone number listed for the student in TopNet by May 6. We have limited capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Ensure your updated cell number is on file
It is imperative that graduates update and double check that their cell phone number and email are correct in TopNet. All of the information we will give to graduates will involve text messaging; therefore, we ask graduates to make sure their cell phone number is current. Learn more about how to update your information.
If you did not receive your tickets
If you do not receive your tickets for Commencement by Thursday, May 6, it likely means there is an issue with your phone number. Please email email@example.com or call (270) 745-2497 to let us know that you did not receive your tickets. In your message, please be sure to include your name, cell phone number, WKUID and your ceremony date and time, and we will text your tickets to the phone number provided. We will answer students as quickly as we can. If you still have not received your tickets by the morning of your Commencement ceremony, please visit one of the ticket booths at Gates 5 or 6 of L.T. Smith Stadium prior to the ceremony.
