Ticket Information

Admission to the December 2019 Commencement is by ticket only, including children (exception is an infant in the arms of his/her caregiver). The number of tickets you are eligible to receive is dependent on the number of students graduating and the number of seats available in the Cordts Arena. Tickets will be distributed according to the following procedures:

Dates & Location for Ticket Distribution

It is recommended you pick up your tickets at Grad Fair on Wednesday, May 15 in the Lane Center, ARMAH, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. However if you’re unable to attend, you may pick up your tickets in the University Store, Lane Center, May 16-17 and May 20-22 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:15 p.m.

All Hagerstown students tickets will be at the Hagerstown campus in the office of Kathy Griemsmann, Room 305 beginning May 13. Kathy will notify students of pick up times. If you have not yet been cleared for graduation, please allow 24 hours from point of notification of clearance to allow time to prepare your tickets.

Pick-Up Procedure

  • You must pick up your own tickets. Tickets cannot be picked up “by proxy” (i.e., by another student or by a family member).
  • You must show your FSU ID or valid driver’s license, and you will be required to sign a form verifying that the tickets have been given to you.
  • If you’re sure you do not want all your tickets, please take your excess tickets to the SGA Office, in the Lane Center, Room 223 for distribution at the ticket giveaway (details below).

Mailing of Tickets

All requests for mailing tickets (under necessary circumstances only) should be directed to Christie Bohn by EMAIL ONLY at clbohn@frostburg.edu. The last day to have tickets mailed is Monday, May 13, 2019.

How the Giveaway Works

  • May 2019 graduating students only (with photo ID) stand in line and are handed 1-2 tickets.
  • They may then get back in line and continue until they have what they need or tickets run out.
  • Although we can't guarantee the number of tickets given, there has never been an issue with students not getting what they need so far.
  • Tickets must be held until this late date to allow all students graduating the maximum amount of time to obtain their tickets.
