I don't think there is a limit.  It's hosted at a large convention center.

No. It doesn’t include the senior. When my daughter graduated. The only ones that could go were my husband, myself, my stepdaughter, my son , and my mom. Not enough tickets for my dad to go.

My high school was small. So there was no limits or tickets. It was an open field and anybody and everybody could come. 

My kids high school is huge. The graduation is held at staples center. My oldest is starting his freshman year this fall so I have no idea yet how many tickets they give out.

We didn’t have tickets. Anyone who wanted to come was allowed to come.

I’m sure they just divided the legal occupancy number by the number of people who got tickets. I don’t see why 7 is more random than any other number.

I don’t think there’s a set number of tickets handed out for graduation. I’m not sure. My daughter isn’t officially a teen until May, but I figured it’s close enough.

If it was outside there was no limit. If it had to be in the auditorium there was 4 tickets per graduate.

Small school. No tickets given. You just told how many seat you needed in the family row, which were alphabetical. There were only 17 in my class. Our kids go to the same school as I and Dh so same rules.
