Frequently Asked Questions about Graduation

How do graduation tickets work?

Only ticket-holders will be admitted to the Graduation ceremony. In March, each graduate will be issued four tickets for the auditorium via intercampus mail boxes or at their home (for those off campus). Additional tickets can be requested by the graduating student and are provided based on availability.

What time should I arrive?

The auditorium doors will open at 10am for all ticket-holders.  The ceremony will start promptly at 11am.

I’d like more information about accessible seating at the graduation ceremony.

Please contact the Kim Nash, in the Registrar’s Office, at knash@redeemer.ca for more information about accessible seating.

Where should I meet my graduate after the ceremony?

After the ceremony, all graduates, faculty and guests will gather in the front quad (weather permitting) for a reception including hors d’oeuvres, cake and beverages.
