Also, Cap & Gown Rental Info

Attention, Soon-To-Be Graduates!

TICKETS to the USC School of Cinematic Arts Commencement Ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium on Friday, May 12, 2017 will be available for pick up in your division office:

Monday, April 24 through Thursday, May 11, 2017

Please be sure you have completed the SCA Commencement Registration on the SCA Community web site before picking up your tickets.  (Register at http://scacommunity.usc.edu/ and click on Commencement Registration under the My Tools section.)

 Tickets are required for your guests for entry to BOTH the SCA Ceremony and the SCA Reception.  One ticket gets them into both events.  Please have your guests hold onto their tickets for entry to the SCA Reception at the SCA complex immediately following the ceremony.

Graduates do not need tickets to enter either event.

If you need additional tickets for guests, please see a staff member in your division office.  Lost tickets cannot be replaced.

HONOR CORDS are provided by SCA and will be available for pick up in your division office Monday, April 24 through Thursday, May 11, 2017.

Honor cords may be worn by undergraduates who have earned a minimum 3.5 university GPA by the end of the Fall 2016 semester.  Note:  Eligibility to wear honor cords is not an indication that academic honors (cum laude, etc.) will be designated on your diploma/record since these honors will be awarded after final grades are determined after commencement.


Students who went to Grad Fest and pre-paid for their cap and gown rental can pick up their regalia a week before everyone else, on Thursday April 27 or Friday, April 28, 2017.  Bring your receipt with you.

Otherwise, rental of regalia is available Monday, May 1st until 12 noon on Friday, May 12 at the University Bookstore, 3rd floor.  Bachelor’s - $59.99, Master’s - $79.99. Doctoral - $99.99.

Return your cap, gown, and hood after the SCA ceremony or in regalia drop-off bins throughout campus or at the drop-off area outside the Bookstore on May 12, 2017.
