Commencement FAQs

How do I register to attend the PhD Hooding Ceremony?

Eligible PhD candidates of the Class of 2023 may register to attend the PhD Hooding Ceremony on Wednesday, May 17, at 4:30 p.m. through the Tandon Commencement registration website MarchingOrder registration Page. Attendance at this event is optional; and doctoral students may choose to attend this event instead of, or in addition to, the Tandon Commencement Ceremony at the Barclays Center on Thursday, May 18.

All eligible doctoral candidates interested in attending the PhD Hooding Ceremony must register through MarchingOrder by Saturday, April 22 at 11:59 p.m. ET. If you do not register and place your ticket order by this date, participation and guest tickets will not be accommodated.

Who can attend the PhD Hooding Ceremony?

Only eligible doctoral candidates and their guests are able to attend the PhD Hooding Ceremony at the NY Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge on Wednesday, May 17. Candidates who register to attend the ceremony will receive additional information about arrival times, ceremony program, and more, shortly after the April 22 registration deadline.


How do I request extra tickets for the PhD hooding Ceremony?

All eligible doctoral candidates may request up to 3 tickets to the PhD Hooding Ceremony.

Once the ceremony registration deadline (April 22) has passed and we confirm the number of requested guests, we hope to open a lottery for additional tickets. As a result, additional information regarding a ticket lottery will be sent to all ceremony registrants in late April.
