Where do I get my cap and gown?
Graduates and degree candidates participating in the ceremonies are required to wear academic attire. Graduates can wear the same cap and gown for both NYU Wagner Convocation and NYU Commencement.
When do I receive my diploma?
At Convocation, will there be accessible seating for guests in wheelchairs or with mobility limitations?
Yes. Please indicate on the Ticket Request Form if you need ADA accessibility for your guest(s).
Do I and my guests need tickets for Convocation and Commencement? How do I obtain them?
Guest Tickets for NYU Wagner Convocation can be requested online beginning mid-March. Eligible graduates can request up to four (4) guest tickets and apply for waitlist tickets. The venue's policy requires all guests to have a ticket, including infants and toddlers.
I am finishing classes over the summer. Can I apply to walk this May?
Students who will be completing their final degree requirements over the summer term are considered September graduation candidates.
Which side does my tassel go on?
Since all students have received a previous degree, the tassel should be on your left.
I am a dual-degree student. Can I attend both ceremonies?
Dual-degree students are eligible to attend both of the individual school ceremonies and NYU Commencement. Students must be eligible and apply for graduation separately at both schools and apply for tickets separately from both schools.
How do I order copies of my graduation photograph that was taken at the Convocation ceremony?
As a courtesy, professional photographs will be taken of each graduate and mailed to his/her permanent address approximately two weeks after graduation.
