IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Families and friends of UI graduates will need tickets to attend undergraduate summer commencement. The ceremony, scheduled to be held 7:30 p.m. July 28 at Hancher Auditorium, is expected to draw a capacity crowd.

Students are entitled to reserve up to four tickets. Students may request up to two additional tickets from a pool that will be distributed by lottery.

Students interested in participating in the ticket lottery should send an e-mail message to by June 30 with "UG Tickets" in the subject line. The message should include name, student ID number, phone number, and the number of additional tickets desired (maximum two). E-mails received by June 30 will be eligible for the lottery.
