Picking Up Tickets, Caps and Gowns

Graduating students should stop by a Commencement Kick Off event to pick up tickets, caps and gowns, and other important information about commencement day.

Commencement Ceremony

The College of Communication commencement ceremony is on Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 1 – 3:30 p.m. The ceremony will take place at Wintrust Arena, located at 200 E. Cermak Rd., Chicago, IL 60616. Doors open at 12 p.m.

  • Tickets are required for commencement, with each graduate receiving six (6) free tickets.
  • Before the ceremony, graduates and their guests should become familiar with Wintrust Arena’s strict bag and purse policy, which prohibits nearly all purses and bags, and its list of other prohibited items. Everyone entering the arena will pass through a metal detector and security bag check.
  • We encourage graduates and guests to travel to Wintrust Arena via public transportation.
