Augsburg University faculty are encouraged to participate in the Commencement ceremony and march in the processional to show support and encouragement to the graduates.
Due to security protocols at U.S. Bank Stadium, everyone entering the stadium for the Augsburg Commencement ceremony will be required to go through standard security screening and present an officially issued ticket to the ceremony. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the bag restrictions and prohibited items prior to coming to the stadium to make your entrance process as smooth as possible. Bags larger than 12x6x12 will not be allowed, so, please plan accordingly prior to coming to the stadium.
To indicate your plans to participate and to request your faculty access ticket:
- Please visit www.augsburg.edu/commencement

U.S. Bank Stadium–Faculty must enter through southwest Legacy Gates.
All participating faculty will need to go through security and enter the stadium at the southwest Legacy Gates on the west side of the stadium. There will be no admission at other gates. Once inside, faculty will check in on the concourse level and be escorted to field level for line-up.
All participating faculty need to be checked in and ready to process by no later than 5:30 p.m.
Please be sure to allow adequate time for parking and to get through security when planning your arrival to the stadium. We recommend that you look carefully at the stadium’s security policies, bag size limits and list of prohibited items to ensure your ability to quickly enter the building.
We recognize that many members of the Augsburg University staff enjoy attending Commencement to support students they may have worked with over their academic career. If possible, there are many needs for staffing assistance on the day of the event to assist with checking in students, escorting students to field level, assisting with accessible seating, handing out programs and/or providing directional support at the stadium. Many of these opportunities would allow you the ability to stay and view the ceremony in its entirety.
If you’re interested in assisting with staffing this very important event and ensuring a wonderful experience for our students and their families, please fill out the Commencement Staffing Form and someone will reach out to you to discuss.
Staff signed up and confirmed to work the event will receive a ticket and staff instructions for their specific responsibilities about one week prior to the event.
