Ticketing Process for 2023 Undergraduate Commencement

Graduating students: Watch your Marquette email for an RSVP form from University Special Events!

Congratulations to our students who will graduate in May 2023! Marquette University looks forward to honoring your many accomplishments.

As announced previously, due to the size of this year’s graduating class, venue capacity limits and the orientation of the stage within the venue, guest tickets will be required for the undergraduate Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 20, at 9 a.m. at the Fiserv Forum. To ensure a fair and equitable process, each undergraduate student who will be attending the ceremony will receive up to four guest tickets via their Ticketmaster account.

Both the undergraduate and graduate Commencement ceremonies can also be livestreamed on the Commencement website.  

Visit the Ticketing Process webpage for more information about Commencement Ticketing.

Please Note: There will be no ticketing requirement nor a limit on guests for the Graduate School and Graduate School of Management ceremony because of the size of those classes.

“We are excited to return to the venue that best suits an event with the pomp and circumstance of Commencement, and we are pleased that the Milwaukee Bucks worked with us to identify a date that will permit us to again celebrate our thousands of graduates in that premier space,” says Provost Kimo Ah Yun.  

With Commencement moving to Saturday this year, the Baccalaureate Mass will be held Friday, May 19, at 3:30 p.m. at the Al McGuire Center on campus. The Mass, at which all graduating Marquette students and their guests are welcome, will be followed by a reception hosted by President Michael R. Lovell and the Marquette Jesuit community.
