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.
