Michelle Obama A&T Graduation commencement ticket

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Want to see Michelle Obama speak at North Carolina A&T State University’s commencement on May 12th? You’ll have to pay up. Big time.

While hundreds of people waited in line Wednesday morning to get tickets, one person has listed six graduation tickets on craigslist for $250 each.

In the listing, the seller claims to have six tickets and three parking passes available.

University officials said they have limited access to the ceremony for security reasons. Officials originally limited students to four tickets, but have since increased the number to eight.

Officials said they are not selling tickets and have asked graduates to not sell theirs.

Students started picking up the tickets at the University’s ticket office on a first-come, first-serve basis Wednesday morning.

There were around 200 waiting in line for tickets as of around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
