Seating and Tickets

The doors will open one hour prior to the published start time of the ceremony. Commencement seating is open on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend that large groups of guests wishing to sit together arrive early because venues will not permit the saving of seats.

At the BB&T Center, wheelchair-accessible areas are reserved for guests with special needs in Sections 102, 104, 107, 109, 112, 115, 117, 119, and 134, which is easily reached from the main plaza area. At the Don Taft University Center, all wheelchair-accessible seating is located on the second floor of the arena. Only one guest may accompany those who require wheelchair-accessible seating so as to secure enough seats for all of our guests with special needs.


There are no tickets required to attend NSU Commencement.
