UCLA Extension Certificate Graduation Ceremony is just around the corner! If you’re planning to participate in the graduation ceremony, please read the following updates:
❶ The official RSVP date for students to attend graduation is Saturday, June 13th, however ticketing will continue to remain open for as long as tickets are still available (see ticket information below).
❷ Students are no longer able to “opt-in” to receive an invitation via MyExtension. If you have yet to indicate your intent to be invited to graduation and would like to receive an invitation, then please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your complete contact information, as well as the certificate program you are completing. We will then send you an invitation. Please make sure you are aware you will only receive one invitation to attend graduation.
❸ If you haven’t already done so, you must fill out the Intent to Graduate Form and e-mail it to Nicholas Sitter (email@example.com).
❹ Regarding the program booklet, the last day to submit names to appear in the program will be Friday, June 5th. Names received after this date will still receive an invitation, but their name will not appear in the program.
Tickets are required to attend the graduation ceremony, and are available for purchase at the UCLA Central Ticket Office. Each student is given one (1) complimentary ticket.
The UCLA Central Ticket Office website is the only way for students to RSVP to attend graduation. There will be a ticket window on the day of graduation at Royce Hall, which will open at 3:30 p.m. for students to purchase guest tickets and receive their complimentary ticket should they not have done it in advance, and as long as tickets are available.
Students may purchase up to four (4) additional tickets at $20 each. Graduates and guests must have tickets to be admitted to Royce Hall. Please note that seating capacity at Royce Hall is limited (1800 seats).
