Due to the limited seating capacity of the University Cultural Centre (UCC) Hall, we are unable to replace your lost invitation cards. You may approach the Information Counter that is located at the UCC Foyer on the day of your ceremony to check if there are any unused or returned invitation cards for the ceremony.

Additional Invitation Cards

Q1. How can I request additional invitation cards for my guests?

Most ceremonies will not have spare seats. However, you may submit your request for additional invitation cards when registering attendance via via myEduRec (Academics > Commencement Registration).

Issuance of additional invitation cards (if any) depends on availability of seats at that particular ceremony and allocation is by balloting.

Q2. How do I check if I am successful in the additional card ballot?

You may check for the additional cards ballot outcome via myEduRec (Academics > Commencement Registration) in December 2020.

Q3. Can I appeal for additional invitation cards after the ballot result is released?

The ballot result is final. We regret to inform that we are unable to attend to any appeals/additional requests.

Q4. Why is it that there are no extra invitation cards available when my friend is not attending the ceremony?

We usually invite more graduates to each ceremony than the maximum number that the UCC Hall can hold. Thus, there will be no extra invitation cards if most of the invited graduates are attending.

Q5. I am not successful in the additional card ballot.  However, I really need one more card.  Is there other way to get it?  Can I buy from you?

The Commencement guest invitation cards are not for sale.  You may approach the Information Counter at the UCC Foyer on the day of your ceremony to check if there are any unused or returned invitation cards for the ceremony. If there are, they will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis.
