Spring Baccalaureate Ceremonies

The Spring 2016 Baccalaureate Ceremonies will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2016, at Radio City Music Hall. You will have the option of being recognized at a morning ceremony beginning at 10:00AM, or alternatively you may participate in an afternoon ceremony beginning at 3:00PM. Both ceremonies will last approximately two hours. Seating is by reservation only. If a ceremony has been booked to capacity, requests for tickets will be placed for the available alternative.

Invitation Eligibility

Eligible seniors will be sent an invitation to participate in the CAS Spring 2016 Baccalaureates to both the permanent and local addresses the student has provided to the University. Please note: if you have moved or your permanent address has changed, you must inform the University Registrar as soon as possible. All candidates must have applied for graduation using Albert by the application deadline in order to receive an invitation.

If you do not receive your invitation, please verify your address at the University Registrar's Office located on the 1st Floor at 25 W. 4th Street.

Please visit the Registrar's Website for information regarding graduation application deadlines.


Tickets must be ordered on this website from Monday, March 21 until Wednesday, April 20. Beginning Monday, March 21 there will be a link on the main page that will direct students to the ticket ordering site.

PLEASE NOTE: Each student will be able to order a maximum of four (4) guest tickets online, not including the student's own ticket. An email confirmation will be sent once an order has been received.

Ticket Pick-Up
Tickets must be picked up at the Kimmel Kiosk, Kimmel Lobby, 60 Washington Square South:

Dates and Time:
Thursday, May 5: 10AM—7PM
Friday, May 6: 10AM—4PM
Monday through Wednesday, May 9, 10, 11: 10AM—7PM
Thursday, May 12: 10AM—4PM

All tickets must be picked up in person by the CAS graduating senior. If, however, the degree candidate cannot pick up at the designated times, another student may pick up the tickets provided the following documentation is presented.

  1. Copy of the graduate's ID card (photocopy or smartphone image)
  2. Signed email from the degree candidate authorizing pick up (photocopy or smartphone image)
The student picking up for the absent graduate must present their NYU Photo ID.

Additional Tickets
Once the deadline to pick up tickets has passed, IF there are any additional unclaimed guest tickets, they will be put into a lottery for those students who desire more than their allotted four. There is no guarantee that there will be a lottery, but if there are unclaimed tickets and a lottery is held, students may enter for up to two additional guest tickets. In the event that a lottery is held, the odds of winning will depend upon the number of lottery participants, the number of unclaimed tickets that go into the pool, and the number of tickets each participant requests.
