  • You must be a degree-seeking student, taking at least a half-time load (at least six credits for aid types other than the Pell Grant).

Spring Commencement ticket information

Spring Commencement 2014 is May 17 at 2 p.m. in the Marcovich Wellness Center on campus. Each graduate will receive four tickets. DL graduates must call to reserve tickets by April 25. Distance Learning students are not required to physically pick up their tickets but must claim them by calling the YU Information Desk at (715)394-8244 by April 25. DL students can pick up their four tickets at commencement.

Due to occupancy restrictions all guests attending commencement will need to present a guest ticket at the door for entry to the ceremony. This includes babies and small children, even if they will sit on adult laps. Additional guests are invited to watch the ceremony live on a projection screen in one of our overflow rooms. A live stream will also be provided online and can be found on the University's website the day of commencement.
