Commencement 2022

SUNY New Paltz is preparing to celebrate our newest graduates at in-person, outdoor Commencement ceremonies on May 20, 21 & 22, 2022.

The College is currently planning a Commencement weekend that resembles celebrations in 2019 and years prior: Three in-person ceremonies will be held across three days, with graduating students seated together and families, friends, faculty and staff cheering them on in person as they walk the stage.

Graduating students may reserve up to four guest tickets

The College will provide reserved seating on the Old Main Quad for up to four guests per student, the same number as in pre-COVID ceremonies. Graduating students should keep an eye on their newpaltz.edu email (or their primary email account they have registered with the Office of Records & Registration). At present, we no longer plan to require guests to show proof of vaccination.

Tickets are only available online to graduating students who have completed the 2022 Application for Graduation by the deadline date listed above in How do I sign up to partcipate in the ceremony?

Extra guests may bring lawn chairs and view the ceremony from outside the reserved seating area.  All children two years old plus will require a ticket for entry.

Due to capacity limits in the reserved seating area, we cannot exceed the four reserved guest ticket policy. No exceptions.

Caps & Gowns

For students who may have missed the online order deadline, the bookstore will have graduation regalia available for purchase, in-store, starting May 2nd and every day the bookstore is open through graduation. The bookstore will also be open during both ceremonies, starting at 8am
