Guest tickets are required for admission to the Commencement Ceremony. Graduates are encouraged to distribute tickets to their guests before May 22, 2020.  

Graduating students will be able to order up to seven (7) guest tickets through an online process beginning in April 2020. If there are any additional tickets available in mid-May, we will hold a lottery for those tickets.  

  • Students participating in the Commencement Ceremony will not need a ticket for admission.
  • Requests for tickets will only be processed for students who are cleared to graduate.
  • Tickets requested on the online form will be processed as requested; changes to initial requests cannot be guaranteed.  
  • Students who are not cleared for graduation by April 29, 2020 will receive a reduced number of guest tickets.

Late Ticket Request: Graduating students who miss the deadline to order guest tickets or who are cleared late for graduation may be subject to receiving a reduced number of guest tickets.  



Information will be available soon!



If any graduating students or guests require special accommodations such as wheelchair accessible seating, please inform the Student Affairs office by calling 212-774-0750 or by emailing no later than Friday, May 1, 2020.
