Securing Tickets and Printing Tickets

  • Additional tickets can be requested up until April 14th through their student ticketing account.  More information on how to navigate this process can be found on the Ticketing Tutorial.
  • An email will be sent to all eligible students (those who've applied to graduate by March 7) with a link to access this account and print up to seven guest tickets by a confirmed deadline. This email will come through a student's CSUN email account.

Additional Ticketing Questions and Information

  • Students must print their tickets by the deadline (April 14th, 2014) 
  • Ticketing accounts will be temporarily disabled on April 15th (for approx. 1 to 2 weeks) during which students  cannot reprint, view, etc., their tickets. 
  • Students will be notified by CSUN email about their additional ticket requests.  We will make every effort to accommodate these requests but it is not guaranteed. 
  • If students misplace their tickets they can be reprinted, which will void out their misplaced tickets. This function can be found on the student ticketing account.
  • Tickets are officially claimed by students when they are printed.  "Tickets Claimed" vs. "Tickets Printed" are referencing the same thing.
  • If students are not granted access to their ticket account it is possible that they are not eligible to participate.  Please review the commencement procedures for more information on eligibility.
  • If you have any problem printing your tickets, please review the FAQ section of the commencement website, or send an email to commencementtickets@csun.edu.
  • Students sometimes find that they are "locked-out" of their ticket account which is a result of unsuccessful log-in attempts.  If you find yourself 'locked-out', please wait till the next day to retry gaining access to their ticketing account. 
  • Most ticketing problems are due to student's misunderstanding of accounts and passwords.  Please read over the instructions prior and/or review the ticketing tutorial prior to contacting commencementtickets@csun.edu.
  • Tickets printed by the official deadline will remain on a student's ticket account and can be reprinted if they are misplaced.  If reprinted, the misplaced ticket will become void and cannot be utilized.
