Kennesaw State University now requires that an individually numbered and barcoded ticket be presented by each guest for admission to the Convocation Center. To comply with this requirement, the Cobb County School District has implemented a new procedure for allocating commencement tickets. 

Guest tickets for commencement will be requested online by the graduate via the Student Portal. The graduate will request the number of tickets desired for their guests. However, the graduate is not guaranteed the number requested. Graduates and parents/guardians should discuss the number of tickets the graduate should request for the family. 

The school will provide instructions to access the Student Portal. The Student Portal will open on Monday, March 6, for ticket requests by graduates. Graduates who do not submit a request will receive 2 tickets. The deadline for requesting tickets will be Friday, March 24. Once tickets are allocated, graduates and parents/guardians will be notified that the number of tickets granted may be viewed in the Student Portal. Instructions for May graduates are attached to this page (English and Spanish).

Access the Student Portal using this link: https://studentportal.cobbk12.org/

Each guest ticket for schools with a ceremony at Kennesaw State University will have a unique barcode and will be valid only for the ceremony, date, and time shown on the ticket. Lost or damaged tickets cannot be replaced. Once a ticket is scanned for entry to the venue, it is no longer valid and cannot be re-used for further entry or re-entry.
