Graduates who submitted their RSVP and ordered their cap and gown by the March 31 deadline will be given four (4) guest tickets.

Responses received after the deadline are not guaranteed guest tickets.

Graduates do not need tickets for themselves, but must arrive at Radio City Music Hall wearing cap and gown to enter the venue. 

All guests age 2 and up require a ticket for admission. ​

Due to the number of students expected to attend the commencement ceremonies, we do not anticipate extra guest tickets to be available.

Tickets must be picked up by the distribution dates below, otherwise they may be forfeited. Please note: We cannot mail guest admission tickets. If you cannot make it to pick up your attire, instructions, and tickets on any of the available dates you may send someone (a proxy) in your place.
