Graduation Tickets

Ticket Information

Graduates who complete the RSVP will receive complimentary guest tickets for their designated ceremony. Due to capacity restrictions and the graduating class size, six (6) general admission guest tickets will be available for each graduate. The university understands this number may not accommodate all guests. However, in an attempt to ensure each candidate is offered an equal opportunity for having selected guests share in their day, there will not be additional tickets available for distribution or purchase.

No later than Wednesday, May 1, graduates who have RSVP'd will receive an email from SDSU Graduation with a unique Ticketmaster access code.

  • The unique access code will be provided only to the graduate’s @jacks email account.
  • Graduates redeem the tickets from Dacotah Bank Center’s Ticketmaster venue page and have the ability to transfer tickets to another Ticketmaster account.
  • Each graduate is guaranteed six (6) guest tickets for their specific ceremony.
  • Guest tickets are valid for only the ceremony the graduate has RSVP’d to participate.
  • Guest tickets contain a unique barcode and as a result, duplicated tickets will not provide entry into the ceremony.
  • All guest tickets are complimentary, and guests should never pay for tickets.
  • Graduates and guests will have different entrances and arrival times for the ceremonies, and it is recommended ticket transfers are completed prior to arrival at the Dacotah Bank Center.
  • Children under 2 will not require a ticket, but must sit with an adult. If a child has had their second birthday, they will require a ticket.
  • Doors will open for ticketing ONE hour prior to each ceremony.
  • Graduates are encouraged to download and transfer tickets prior to arriving at the Dacotah Bank Center.
