2019 Commencement – General Information

As the graduating classes at MMA have grown in recent years, it has been increasingly challenging to assure that the families of graduates are able to have priority seating at Commencement. Only people holding tickets will be admitted into the Field House.

Each graduating student who is marching at Commencement will receive six (6) tickets. Students not needing all six tickets can donate to a pool. Students needing extra tickets can go to the ticket pool and, if available, select up to two tickets.  These tickets are for the Field House. Graduates may print their claimed tickets or email them to family at

Overflow seating will be provided in the Margaret Chase Smith Gymnasium, which is connected to the Field House complex. Overflow seating will not require tickets, and attendees can watch the webstream on large screens in real time.
