Ceremony Details for Guests


Guest Arrival Time and Entrance

2:00pm, Chase Square, 32nd Street and 7th Avenue
Once the academic procession begins, guests will be asked to wait until all the graduates have been seated before proceeding into the Hall. It is therefore advisable for guests to arrive one hour before the start of Commencement. 


Each guest attending Commencement must bring his/her own ticket. As seating in the Theater is limited, guests will not be admitted unless they have commencement tickets. Tickets are distributed to participating graduates who RSVP by the deadline beginning 2 weeks prior to the ceremony.
