Registration & Tickets

Check your email for links to purchase graduation tickets and regalia. We are expecting a sold-out event, so buy your tickets early! Visit our FAQs for more information.


Graduate Registration

Graduates from all Penn Foster schools who have completed in 2022 or 2023 can participate in the ceremony. You must be 100% complete academically and paid in full by June 30, 2023 to be eligible to walk in this year’s ceremony. All graduates must register and purchase a regalia package.

Graduate registration is $45.50 and includes an engraved diploma holder for you to take home. Guest tickets need to be purchased separately.

Eligible graduates will receive an email on May 15, 2023 with personalized links to register for graduation, purchase guest tickets and order regalia. If you did not receive the email or completed the academic or financial requirements after that date, please contact Graduation Services at 1.800.232.1243 for assistance.

If you graduated in 2020 or 2021 and are interested in attending graduation, stay tuned! We're working on a way to allow interested grads from these years to submit their story for consideration. We have a limited number of seats, so can only allow a select number of graduates from other years to attend. Those who are chosen will still need to go through the same registration process mentioned above in order to attend. Transportation and lodging for the event are not provided by Penn Foster for any graduate.

Graduate Cap & Gown

Regalia can be purchased from the Penn Foster Jostens store. Your cap, gown, and tassel will be mailed directly to you from Josten’s. If you prefer to purchase separately, please make sure your gown is black.

Your formal diploma, certificate, or degree will be sent to your home and will not be handed out at the ceremony.

Guest Tickets

What’s a commencement ceremony without your friends and family there to cheer you on? Guest tickets are $30 each, plus Ticketmaster fees and must be purchased through the Ticketmaster link provided in your email. In order to have enough space for all graduates to bring friends and family, we will be limiting to 6 guest tickets per graduate. All guests require a ticket to permit entrance. Children 2 years old and younger are free.
