August/December 2015 graduates and May/August 2016 undergraduate candidates will receive only four guest tickets and their student participation ticket. It is school policy that only four guest tickets will be provided. All guests, including infants, must have a ticket. Extra guests are welcome to bring lawn chairs and sit outside the guest seating area.
You must complete the Graduating Student Survey to retrieve your confirmation number. The link will be sent to your New Paltz e-mail account beginning Friday, April 15, 2016. The confirmation number is needed along with your New Paltz ID or photo to pick up your four guest tickets and student participation ticket.
How do I pick up my tickets?
1. If you were unable to attend the recent rehearsals, tickets will also be distributed at the Welcome Center in the Haggerty Administration Building Lobby from Friday, May 6 until Friday, May 13, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. On Friday, May 13, tickets can be picked up until 3 p.m.
2. Candidates or their families may also pick up their tickets the day of the ceremony at the will call table located by the stone benches near Jacobson Faculty Tower in the academic concourse. If someone other than the candidate is picking up the tickets, that individual will need a photo ID and a signed note from the candidate with a confirmation number.
