All spectators entering the College Park Center will be required to be in possession of a ticket to enter the facility. All students will be given 12 tickets. Students may share those tickets with other students if they are not going to use all 12. The College Park Center capacity is over five thousand persons for our event; historically Red Oak's graduation has never reached this limit, so we feel confident all wishing to attend will have an opportunity.

Seating will be on a "first come first serve" basis. Saving of seats is not allowed. Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. for seating in the center. Handicapped seating is available on the Main Concourse level; one attendant will be allowed with each handicapped guest.

Student ticket distribution will be on Wednesday, May 24 during all three lunches. Only students with their ID's will be allowed to pick up their tickets. The tickets will be the responsibility of the student and tickets cannot be replaced.

Per UTA policy, tickets will not be available at the College Park Center on the day of the ceremony.
