#2 – Tickets & Gown Purchase

 

If you haven’t done so already, all graduating seniors should have filed with Registrar to secure that you are going to be participating in the ceremony. If you have already been approved for graduation, you are given the OK to secure the tickets for it.

 

Each graduate will receive a maximum of four guest tickets. Graduates who had been approved to graduate by the Office of the Registrar will be able to go online to order their tickets. The graduate will not require a ticket and only guests with a ticket will be admitted. Each person requiring a seat will be counted for as a ticket, including children.

 

Seating in the main tent is available on a first-come, first-serve!! Once seating is filled, ticket holders left will be directed to the overflow tent for viewing.

 

All students who plan to attend commencement must order and reserve tickets online. You have from now till Friday, May 13, 2011 to order.

 

Once you have reserved your tickets, you will be able to select a time in which you will be able to come pick them up. If you cannot make the specific time you select, you can go at any of the other times offered.

 

On a side note, if you wish to order a class ring and/or wish to have a senior portrait taken, all will be conducted during the ticket pick-up times.

 

For caps and gowns, students can purchase them at the NYIT Bookstore between May 1st and May 18th. The Bachelors package is $90.49 and the Masters package is approximately $104.00. Honors cords are purchased separately and are $14.10 after tax.

#3 – When and where do I go for graduation?

 

Graduates are expected to arrive on campus fully attire (cap, gown etc.) between 8:15-8:45AM. Graduates will report to Presidents Stadium (track) and be ready for assembly.

 

Once the graduates arrive, they will be escorted into the main tent at 8:45AM and sit together via school. Anyone who arrives past 8:45AM will be prompted to report straight to the main tent and be seated in the graduate section.
