- All requests for additional tickets (wait list) must be made by the student. *Please note: Our 1 p.m. convocation is booked to capacity.  It is highly unlikely that we will be able to provide additional tickets for this convocation.  Also, due to the high volume of requests already received, the wait list is now CLOSED.
