April 22, 2021 – Guest ticket download information

Posted by on Friday, April 23, 2021 in Announcements.

Class of 2020

Your guest tickets for 2020 Vanderbilt Commencement are now ready for download.

These are the tickets that guests will use to enter the ceremony; graduates will receive separate check-in instructions ahead of Commencement. Though we originally planned to release the tickets 48 hours prior to Commencement, we have been able to move that timeline up to today to provide additional time to download the tickets. As a reminder, anyone found to be distributing guest tickets in exchange for compensation of any kind may not be able to participate in Commencement and all of their tickets will be invalidated.

Please check and make sure that your tickets match the ceremony you are planning to attend. 

If you have any questions about your tickets or how to access them, please contact the Vanderbilt Ticket Office at 615-322-4653 ext.1 or ticket.office@vanderbilt.edu.
