Undergraduate Commencement

Tickets are not required if the ceremony is held in McCarthy Stadium. Tickets are required if the ceremony is held in the Hayman Center due to inclement weather.

Each student will be provided four guest tickets in the event the Commencement ceremony is held indoors. Tickets will be available to be picked up on the dates, times, and locations listed below to all degree candidates and those students who have been granted walk-through authorization by their academic Dean/Graduate Director. A valid La Salle University ID card or photo ID (driver’s license) is required to obtain your tickets.

The University is not able to maintain a waiting list for graduates wanting additional tickets. Any graduate who feels that he/she needs more than four tickets is urged to locate another graduate not planning to use his/her ticket allotment.

Please note that the University is unable to replace lost or forgotten tickets. In case of inclement weather, guests must have tickets in order to gain admittance to a Commencement Ceremony in the Hayman Center.

will receive a 2017 Explorer Yearbook without an additional fee.

The Explorer Yearbook will be mailed to all full-time day program undergraduate students in September. Please make sure mailing addresses on file with the Registrar’s Office are up to date. Continuing studies or graduate degree candidates can purchase the 2017 Explorer Yearbook for $50. Interested students can send a check or money order made out to La Salle University for $50 with their name, phone number, and shipping address to: Explorer Yearbook, 1900 W. Olney Ave., Box 685, Philadelphia, PA 19141.
