The Phillips Center for Performing Arts requires tickets for entrance to all events, including commencement. All tickets will be provided to students at no cost. However, due to capacity limitations, there will be a limit on the tickets available to each student.
Each graduating student who RSVPs for commencement is guaranteed up to five tickets. Graduating students who wish to attend commencement must RSVP between March 24 and April 1. A web form will be made available and linked from this page beginning March 24. You do not need to contact the Dean’s Office to RSVP.
Regular ticket pickup will occur April 15 to April 17 and requires the presentation of a photo ID. Tickets not picked up by the student or his/her representative will be redistributed as extra tickets. If extra tickets become available, they will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis beginning April 22. There is no waiting list for extra tickets. Students will be contacted through the graduation email listserv for all communication regarding extra tickets as well as other graduation announcements. (Note: the listserv is not yet active, but will be in the next couple of weeks. If you applied to graduate with the University Registrar and do not receive commencement emails by February 28, contact Katelyn Oropeza at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Students in Vicenza (or otherwise studying out of town): We will include instructions in future emails regarding ticket pick-up. We will work with you to ensure your tickets are held until either you or someone you indicate can pick them up. Please email us if you have any questions.
The college will arrange to have the DCP Commencement webcast during the ceremony on May 3. In addition, the video stream will be archived so that you can view it after the ceremony.
Students should order their cap and gown from the UF Bookstore by February 28. If you have questions about ordering your cap and gown, please contact the UF Bookstore at 352-392-0194 or visit their website.
If you missed the Jan. 31 deadline to apply to graduate, follow the instructions on the Registrar’s website.
