University-Wide Commencement Exercises
Keynote Address: Delaware Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester
All guests must present a Guest Admit Ticket for scanning in order to be admitted into a commencement ceremony regardless of age (this includes infants & children). Students participating in the Commencement ceremony can access 5 guest tickets electronically via the Marching Order website.
The ticket number is based on the legal maximum capacity of the facility, the number of graduating candidates, and the Delaware State University Police Department’s recommendation. Commencement tickets are not for sale. Tickets should not be sold by any DSU student or DSU official. Students are encouraged to contact other graduates who may not use their full allotment of tickets. DSU is not responsible for facilitating this exchange.
Remember that anyone can watch the Commencement ceremony on their mobile device or computer with live streaming. The link will be located on Delaware State University’s website.
Commencement will be broadcast live on screens in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Center as an alternative viewing site. Guest tickets are required to access this location.
