2024 Final Exercises | Saturday, May 18 & Sunday, May 19

Updated Process: Graduate Entry to School Assembly Areas

Finals Weekend is almost here, and we look forward to celebrating the Class of 2024. Students who plan to participate in Final Exercises on May 18 or May 19, should be prepared to arrive at their school’s assembly location on Saturday or Sunday no later than 7:45 a.m.

To access the school assembly locations graduates must wear academic regalia and present their UVA Student ID Card to event staff. If you do not have a UVA student ID, an electronic Graduate Ticket is available in your Virginia Athletics Ticket Account. This account can be accessed using the links below and is the same account used to download your 6 guest tickets. Please download the electronic ticket, add it to your mobile wallet, and present the ticket to the event staff for entry. Graduate Tickets are non-transferable and cannot be used by guests or family members; they are only valid in the school assembly areas. Graduate Tickets will also allow entry to John Paul Jones Arena in the event of severe weather as long as the graduate is also wearing academic regalia.

Information about obtaining academic regalia is available here.

Please visit the Finals Weekend website for more information regarding Finals Weekend, including a schedule of events, speakers, accessibility, parking, and FAQs.
