Special Accommodations - Commencement 2015

California Lutheran University strives to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Any guest attending commencement requiring accommodations for a disability needs to submit the Request for Accessibility Seating Tickets.

Guests needing accessibility seating should submit a request form at least two (2) weeks ahead of time as the seating is limited and is first come, first served. 

Any graduating student needing accommodations for the commencement ceremony should contact Disability Support Services at least one month ahead of time to discuss his or her needs. The student may submit a request and/or schedule a meeting with the DSS Coordinator as soon as possible to allow enough time for establishing the accommodations. To schedule a meeting, please call DSS at 805-493-3464 or email .

Request for Accessibility Seating Tickets

Please contact our office at or 805-493-3464 if you have any difficulty completing the form and our staff will be happy to assist you.

One guest may sit with the individual needing special accommodations in this reserved Accessibility Seating Area.   

Each guest must have a ticket, and tickets must be presented at the Accessibility Seating area gate on the day of commencement.  Children two years old and younger do not need a ticket if they sit on the lap of an adult.

Once a request for Accessibility Seating tickets has been processed, the e-tickets will be assigned within the graduating student’s ticket portal. The graduating student will also be sent an email with the tickets attached.
