General admission tickets are required for the ceremonies at the HTC Center (ages one and older). Guest seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Graduates do not need a ticket but are responsible for claiming and distributing their guests’ tickets. Accessible seating will be available in the arena. View the accessibility page for more details.
As a degree candidate planning on walking in your college ceremony, you may claim up to six (6) general admission tickets. Tickets will be available to claim under your CINO ID number by visiting tickets.coastal.edu and selecting “Commencement Tickets.” Tickets will be available starting at Noon ET on Tuesday, Nov. 7. Access to the tickets will continue until Noon ET on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
After initial tickets have been claimed and the number of available seats has been established, an email will be sent to eligible graduates with more information on how to obtain additional tickets online. Additional tickets are not guaranteed but are subject to seating availability. Rush tickets, if available, will be accessible starting Thursday, Dec. 7, at Noon ET, until tickets are exhausted or by Tuesday, Dec. 12, at Noon ET.

Please be advised: Electronic tickets are generated with a unique identifier that is traceable back to the student who requested them. Because of this feature, they can be printed multiple times. Only the first set of allocated tickets scanned by the ticketing staff will gain entrance. Duplicate tickets with the same barcode will be denied entrance after the first set of tickets have been scanned. Any attempt to sell or make mass copies of electronic tickets will be considered a misuse of Coastal Carolina University property. Late seating policy: Latecomers will be seated at the event staff’s discretion.
