Do I, as a graduating student participating in the Humanities I or II ceremony, need a ticket?
No, as a graduate you do not need a ticket. You need to RSVP online via my.ucla.edu during the open RSVP/ticket ordering window. Your regalia is your “ticket” to the ceremony.

Do toddlers and newborns need tickets for Royce Hall as well?

Everyone needs a ticket. This is so they have accurate numbers of who is in the building in case of a disaster and because patrons with babies usually use a second seat for baby items so it is helpful for them to have that extra seat.

When will waitlist tickets be released?
The Division Commencement Coordinator will assess after ticketing ends for students on or around May 25th and will let the students via my.ucla.edu soon after that if waitlist tickets will be released. An email from your department SAO will inform you of waitlist tickets being released.

If my family is in need of assistance due to an elderly relative, who can help me?
Please see the following resource: https://www.commencement.ucla.edu/disability-access. Royce Hall or the staff for Humanities are unable to assist.

Can I walk in Humanities I or II if I am not a major in those departments?
No, due to limited capacity in the venue, we cannot accommodate any student who is not a declared major or minor in Humanities I and/or Humanities II.

Will my name show up in the Commencement Program?
Humanities I and II uses the College Commencement Online Program. If you have a directory or FERPA restrictions, your name may not show up in the Program, you would need to contact College Commencement team to get your name in the Program with directory/FERPA restrictions.

I got tickets for the wrong Humanities ceremony, what do I do?
Please contact the Division’s Commencement Coordinator, Barbara Van Nostrand at bvannost@humnet.ucla.edu who can help fix this for you (if seats are available)

I forgot to RSVP for the ceremony by the deadline, can I still attend?
Please contact the Division Commencement Coordinator, Barbara Van Nostrand at bvannost@humnet.ucla.edu who will assess if there is space available in the ceremony.

How long is the ceremony?
Each ceremony will last no longer than 1 hour and 45 minutes, but hopefully 1 hour and 30 minutes.
