The Rausser College of Natural Resources Commencement is a ticketed event.  Each attendee (including infants & children) must have a ticket to be admitted to the Hearst Greek Theatre.  Student participants do not need tickets for themselves.

Tickets are for general admission and do not have assigned seats.  Tickets will be available for purchase starting at noon on April 23rd via the CalPerformances Box Office.  

Tickets will be $11 each and may be purchased by a UC Berkeley Rausser College student participating in the RCNR Commencement Ceremony.  The purchasing process will require that the student log-in with CalNet Authentication.  Students may purchase up to 3 tickets until Sunday, May 5th.  Starting at noon on May 6th, if there are still tickets available, the ticket limit will be lifted and any individual may purchase as many additional tickets as they would like. 

Please note that once tickets are sold out, there will be no tickets available after the point, even at the door of the Greek Theatre on the day of the event.  If you are unable to acquire tickets for your guests, you are encouraged to have them watch Commencement on the Livestream on YouTube posted on the Commencement website.  Please use this link:
