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 Senior Survey to retrieve your confirmation number.

How do I pick up my tickets?
1. You may pick up your four guest tickets and your candidate participation ticket when you attend one of the two ceremony rehearsals in Lecture Center, 100 from 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, May 1 or Thursday, May 2.
Tickets will be distributed at the end of each of these rehearsals. This one-hour rehearsal will explain how the day will unfold and answer questions. Candidates picking up tickets must provide their New Paltz or photo ID and confirmation number. Attendance is highly encouraged.
2.Tickets will also be distributed at the Welcome Center in the Haggerty Administration Building Lobby from May 3 until May 17, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.
3. 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.
