RSVP and Tickets

The University of Guelph-Humber uses a provider called Marching Order to manage the Convocation registration and ticketing process.

All graduates who plan to attend their ceremony on June 17, 2019 MUST register through Marching Order. The Marching Order system will be available beginning in May 2019.

Registering in Marching Order

Follow these steps when accessing your Marching Order account for the first time

  1. Go to the Marching Order website: http://guelphhumber.marchingorder.com
  2. Click “Register” under New User
  3. Enter your UofGH (GryphMail) email address
  4. An email will be sent to you prompting you to create a password
  5. Login and complete the form

Once logged in to the Marching Order system, please check that the spelling of your name, your student number, academic program, and ceremony time are listed correctly.

You will be asked if you plan to attend your convocation ceremony – please indicate Yes or No. Indicating Yes will allow you to claim your two assigned guest tickets.

Name Pronunciation

In an effort to enhance the graduation experience, Marching Order also allows you to submit a voice recording and phonetic spelling of your full name. Please speak slowly and review your recording for clarity. Name readers review the recordings before the ceremony but graduating students are encouraged to confirm pronunciation with the reader just prior to their name being announced on stage.

Pre-Ceremony Slideshow

We encourage graduating students to submit a personal message that will appear in a slideshow in the Convocation Hall prior to the ceremony. This makes for a keepsake for your class and friends and family – the audience loves seeing them!

Please remember this is a formal ceremony. We discourage you from using slang in your message; messages that contain derogatory and defamatory language will be removed from the slideshow.

Claiming Your Guest Tickets

Each graduating student is assigned two guest tickets. You must “claim” your tickets in the Marching Order system in order to access them.

You can print the tickets yourself, or you can email the electronic ticket directly to your guest(s). Like any other electronic ticketed event, guests can either arrive with a printed copy, or display the ticket on their mobile device for entry.

Failure to complete this step WILL affect your ability to bring guests to the ceremony. Guests without a ticket WILL NOT be allowed entry into the Convocation Hall.

Note: Graduates do not require a ticket to participate in their ceremony.

Extra Guest Tickets

Extra guest tickets will be available to claim on a first come, first serve basis in the Marching Order system. The extra ticket claim window will open in June 2019.

There will be a limited number of extra tickets released for each ceremony, based on the number of seats available in the hall. While we understand that graduates want to share this day with as many loved ones as possible, we are bound by fire code regulations.

The ceremony will be broadcast live from The ceremony will be broadcast live from - this link for those guests unable to attend.
