Additional/Rush Tickets

Additional tickets are not guaranteed but are subject to seating availability. Rush tickets, if available, will be accessible starting Tuesday, December 12, at Noon EST until Thursday, December 14, at 4 p.m. EST. After initial tickets have been claimed and the number of available seats has been established, an email will be sent to graduates with more information on how to obtain additional tickets online.   


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.
