KSU Commencement




  • All Commencement ceremonies are ticketed events; all guests attending must have a ticket, including children and infants.
  • Graduation is an exciting milestone for all our students, and we wish that we could provide unlimited tickets to every graduate. However, we must make accommodations for all graduates to have some guests attend.
  • Therefore, each graduate is allotted a limited number of tickets. Allocation is based on the number of students participating in the ceremony and the capacity of the venue.
