If you failed to place your Barclays Center Commencement Ceremony ticket order before April 4, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to place a late ticket order. Please note, guest tickets cannot be ensured for any orders placed after April 4.
If you failed to place your All-University Yankee Stadium Commencement Ceremony ticket order before April 4, you can still reserve tickets until Friday, May 6. However, you will not be able to pick these tickets up at the Tandon ticket and attire distribution on May 5. Any tickets for the All-University Commencement Ceremony ordered between April 5-May 6 MUST be picked up at the All-NYU distribution from May 10-17 on the Washington Square campus.
If you failed to place your online attire order before April 4, you must place and pick up a late attire order in person on the day of attire distribution on May 5. If your size cap/gown is no longer available, Herff Jones will provide the closest available substitute. Please note that late orders are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you wish to bring more than five guests to the Barclays center ceremony, a limited number of additional tickets will be available on the day of ticket distribution on a first-come first served basis. Unfortunately, no additional tickets may be requested for the Yankee Stadium ceremony.
If you cannot pick up your tickets and attire in person, you may designate a substitute. See the Pick up Proxy form for more information. Please sign the form and have your substitute bring a copy with them to the distribution, along with a copy of your NYU ID (not required for NYU Tandon Online students), their NYU ID, and a copy of your order confirmation.
