Invitation Letter for Graduation Ceremony

Congratulations on your academic success!

If you are participating in the Graduation Ceremony this semester and you would like to invite family members and/or friends to attend, our office can provide you with a status letter in support of your invitation.

Before you request an invitation letter, you must formally file a degree application with the office of Records and Registration.  Additionally, you must ensure that your address is current in my.newpaltz.edu and that no holds exist on your record.

You can email international@newpaltz.edu or request this letter during walk in hours. This letter will certify your current student visa status and your graduation term.  Please provide us with a copy of the identification page of the passport for each person you would like to invite. In addition to the letter(s) we provide, we recommend you write your own letter of invitation.    

For more information on the ceremony, please refer to the commencement homepage.
