The Plan II Commencement Ceremony will take place in Hogg Auditorium, beginning at 9:00 AM on Saturday, May 21st, 2016. Students are required to be there at 8:00 AM in FAC 21. Instructions for graduates (including how and where to get tickets) will be sent to all graduating seniors in mid-April, 2016.
Tickets are required for the Plan II Commencement Ceremony. There is a limit of six tickets per students. Tickets can only be picked up in the Plan II Office, in person, beginning April 25th, 2016. An email detailing how and where to get tickets will be sent to all graduating seniors in mid-April, 2016.
**Common Questions about Tickets**
Who needs a ticket, and why?
Graduating Plan II Honors seniors do NOT need a ticket for the Plan II Honors Graduation ceremony. However, because seating is limited, all guests must have a ticket to enter the Hogg Memorial Auditorium.
How many tickets may I have?
Each graduating senior may pick up SIX (6) tickets for family and guests.
Why only six tickets?
Because seating is limited, we will not have more tickets than available seats. Therefore, we expect that seniors will not pick up more tickets than they intend to use. Please do not pick up six tickets if you know you will only have 4 or 5 guests!
May I have more than six tickets?
If you really intend to use them (see above), but only after all seniors have had a chance to get their tickets (see below).
When may I pick up my tickets?
From MONDAY, APRIL 25 THROUGH FRIDAY, MAY 13, at the Plan II Honors Program office front desk.
How do I get my tickets?
Each senior will be asked to sign for the number of tickets they are picking up. NOTE: This is the time to check the spelling of your name, your other major(s) and degree(s).
May I ask a friend (or another graduate) to pick up my tickets for me?
NO. You should absolutely NOT ask any friends to pick up extra Plan II graduation tickets for you.
Each Plan II graduating senior should claim only the number of tickets he/she needs for their own family members. We have always had enough tickets for everyone who needs extra tickets, precisely because those who need fewer tickets only pick up the number of tickets that they actually need.
What if I miss the deadline?
Tickets will not be reserved for seniors who do not pick up tickets on or before May 8.
How can I get more than six tickets?
BEGINNING ON MONDAY, MAY 16, all remaining Plan II Honors Graduation tickets will be released on a ''first-come, first-served'' basis to those seniors who expect more than 6 guests. If you show up and tickets are available, you can get them. If you show up late and they are gone....that’s that.
We would like to invite each of you to our commencement reception honoring our Plan II graduates immediately following this ceremony. Students, parents, and faculty can relax and greet one another over a light brunch buffet.
The reception will be in the Ballroom of the Texas Union (http://www.utexas.edu/maps/main/buildings/unb.html), just a few steps away from Hogg Auditorium.
PARKING: All the UT parking garages are free on Saturday.
The San Antonio UT Parking Garage (24th and San Antonio; Map: http://www.utexas.edu/maps/main/buildings/sag.html) is the closest parking to the Hogg Memorial Auditorium (http://www.utexas.edu/maps/main/buildings/hma.html)
