  • Your login email is your Columbia email address.
  • Your temporary password is Lions2022 and we strongly recommend changing it upon logging in.
  • All graduating students will need to select a ticket for themselves in order to participate in these celebrations (noted as “Class of 2022 Graduate Ticket” when you register for Commencement and/or Baccalaureate Service).
For more information on registering for Commencement, please visit the University website

Class Day and Commencement Guest Registration

Guest tickets for Class Day, Baccalaureate Service, and University Commencement can also be reserved through AudienceView. Please note:​

  • While we do not anticipate capacity restrictions for Class Day, the registration system only permits you to select up to 10 guest tickets per graduate.
    • If you require more than the 10 guest tickets allotted to you, you will have the option to select additional “Wait List” tickets. You may select up to 5.  
    • Should tickets from the general guest ticket pool become available, we will notify those on the wait list in the order in which we received requests. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate all wait list ticket requests.
  • University Commencement will have a limit of 4 guest tickets per graduate. Baccalaureate Service will have a limit of 10 guest tickets per graduate.
    • Unfortunately, there are no wait lists for additional tickets for these events.

Please refer to the AudienceView how-to guide for visual instructions on how to register your guests for Class Day, Baccalaureate Service, and Commencement. The deadline to register guests, as well as your own ticket for Baccalaureate and Commencement, is Friday, May 13 at 5pm EDT.

The selling or buying of University Commencement tickets is strictly prohibited. Please be cautious of offers to sell or buy Commencement tickets. Tickets hold no official resale value and may be an unauthorized copy, therefore deemed unusable and denied on University Commencement day. Commencement tickets are solely for the purpose of allowing the friends and relatives of graduating students to attend the ceremony. All unwanted tickets should be returned to the respective school for redistribution if a graduate or guest(s) no longer plan to attend University Commencement.
