GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Students are already lining up for tickets to Michelle Obama's graduation commencement speech at North Carolina A&T State University on May 12.

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

Students can pick 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 morning.

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.
