Graduation Ceremony 2016 Ticket Information

 

May 5, 2016  (10:59 am) – The online option of purchasing grad tickets is temporarily offline. Please use the telephone or in-person options until further notice.

 

Attached you will find detailed instructions for how and when you can get tickets to our 2016 Graduation Ceremony. Please note the following very important points.

 

  1. The graduating student must be on the grad list in order to purchase tickets. We update this list for UVic on a daily basis. If you are unsure if you or your student is on the grad list or what is required, please contact the school counsellor.
  2. Each grad is entitled to 3 free tickets but these must also be requested through the UVic ticket centre.
  3. If a student is not on track to grad, meaning that they are not passing the courses required for graduation, they will not be permitted to participate in the grad ceremony.
