Do we need tickets for Graduation?

Yes, graduating students and their guests (two maximum) will be required to present tickets. ​​​ ​​Tickets are non-transferable and have a unique barcode that may be scanned only once.  No additional tickets will be released prior to the event.

What COVID-19 protocols will be in place?

Graduating students are allowed a maximum of two guests accompany them and will be required to provide contact information for both guests as part of the registration process for contact tracing.   A screening process will be required for entry, including temperatures being taken.  Masks will be required at all times.  Social distancing will be enforced and all seats will be at least 6 feet apart.  The entry process and ceremony itself will be touchless.  Ceremony times are staggered throughout the weekend to allow for a lighter flow of people arriving and departing at one time.

Will the ceremonies be web-cast?
Yes, all ceremonies will be webcast.  Links will be posted to the Emory Commencement website.

Where and when do I get my cap and gown?
