Important Registration Information

Those who have pre-registered/paid for a Red Pass or Blue Pass should make the Registration Tent their first stop on campus. There you will pick up your event pass, information about the weekend, and alumni favor (included with paid passes referenced above ONLY, 1 per adult registered). Your event pass is your entry into all your paid activities so make this your first stop on campus! * If you have registered for free events only please go directly to your events, you do not need to stop at the Registration Tent.

50+ and Old Guard Passes: If you purchased the 50+ and Old Guard Pass, you must pick up your pass and football tickets at the 50+ Old Guard Brunch happening Saturday November 4 at 11:00 AM in Houston Hall, Hall of Flags.  Do not go to the registration tent!

Walk-ons: If you have not pre-registered for a pass, but still would like to come to Homecoming, you can register online at any time! Online registration will be open throughout the weekend, or you can pay at the registration tent when you arrive.
