Please note:  Each student participating in the Economics Ceremony does not need to order a ticket for him/herself. 

Once tickets are ordered, students can pick them up at the UCLA Central Ticket Office (at the end of the James West Alumni Center).  The phone number is 310-825-2101.  For a campus map, please visit:

Students will be contacted after Week 9 of the Spring quarter to complete a short, online exit survey.

After completing the survey, students can pick up a name card.

Instructions regarding the exit survey and name card will be forwarded via the Undergraduate Economics SSC CCLE website.  Please make sure that you have added yourself to this website in order to receive commencement communication.
