Tickets and pre-ordered attire were distributed on Thursday, May 8.


If you were not able to pick up your pre-registered tickets, you may do so by going to LC221 on Friday, May 16th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE. Tickets will not be available the morning of either of the commencement ceremonies. If you cannot pick up your tickets in person, you may designate a substitute. See this form for more information. Please note, pre-ordered academic attire that was not picked up during the distribution at Regna Lounge has been returned to Herff Jones and will be made available at the main NYU distribution at Coles Sports Center (see below, under Academic Attire).


As mentioned in previous communications, all remaining unclaimed guest tickets to Barclays Center were evenly distributed to those that came at the end of the May 8th ticket distribution. However, there may be tickets available for Yankee Stadium. Any unclaimed Yankee Stadium tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis on the last day of ticket distribution on Tuesday, May 20th at the Coles Sports Center from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. Please see the NYU Commencement website for details.


IMPORTANT NOTE:  NYU prohibits the direct or indirect sale or auction of all Commencement tickets. Ticket(s) may not be used for advertising, promotion (including contests, giveaways or sweepstakes) or other trade or commercial purposes.  Students engaging in such activities, as well as any other activity that disrupts the administration of the ceremony and/or violates the Yankee Stadium or Barclays Center Security Policies or any NYU student conduct policy, will be subject to NYU disciplinary sanctions, including without limitation the delayed issuance of a degree or diploma.


If you have extra tickets and are not using them - please do your best to share with a fellow graduate in need.  The atmosphere in the Barclays Center will be amazing and we would like to pack the house.

If you cannot pick up your tickets and attire in person, you may designate a substitute. See this form for more information.  Please sign the form and have your substitute bring a copy to the distribution with them.

Graduating candidates will receive up to eight*** guest tickets for the ceremony at Barclays Center. Graduates will enter the ceremony in procession and will be individually announced as they walk the stage.

***Total number of guest tickets distributed will be based on the total amount requested versus the space availability of the venue. The School of Engineering reserves the right to limit the amount of guest tickets distributed.

Please note: Diplomas are not distributed at commencement; and you do not have to attend commencement in order to recieve them. Diplomas are printed twice a year, typically within eight weeks from the degree conferral date. Degree recipients are emailed after conferral with diploma mailing/pickup information. Please contact the Registrar's Office for any questions about your diploma.

You may also participate in NYU’s All University Commencement, which will be held on Wednesday, May 21, at Yankee Stadium. 2014 will mark the first year that our students will be participating in the All Univeristy Commencement as an official school of NYU. As such, you will receive three guest tickets and one candidate ticket for yourself. For your convenience, we will continue to distribute all ticket and attire orders at the Brooklyn Campus. You will also be able to register for both ceremonies right here (above). Registration will open in early March.

ELIGIBILITY

Commencement 2014 is open to all January 2014 graduates and May 2014 candidates only. Students must first apply for their degree through the Registrar's Office. Registration for commencement will open after the Registrar's Spring 2014 degree application deadline.

There is a Dean’s Exception for the All University Commencement whereby graduation candidates who have no more than two courses (one course for graduate students) outstanding to complete their degrees may petition their school’s Academic Dean for eligibility to participate as long as these courses are completed by the end of the summer.
