CAS Baccalaureate 2018 will be held on Thursday, May 17 at the iconic Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. You will have the choice of participating in one of two identical ceremonies, either at 10 AM or 3 PM. Both ceremonies will also be webcast LIVE that day, so all of your friends and loved ones will be able to see you cross the stage and hear your name announced from wherever they may be. Radio City tickets for the degree candidate and up to four guests must be ordered online from Monday, March 19 through Friday, April 20 at http://cas.nyu.edu/seniors.html. Some students express a desire for more than the four tickets allotted to each student: Should unclaimed tickets be available after ticket pick-up ends (see below), a lottery will be held for those students seeking up to two extra guest tickets. There is no way to guarantee if a lottery will be held or what the odds are of winning should there be one.
***Please note: Seniors are strongly encouraged to order only the tickets that they and their guests will need. Since some students have, in the past, violated University regulations by ordering tickets that they had no intention of using-- only to attempt make a profit from their fellow graduates by selling them--Central NYU Administration has instituted a zero-tolerance policy for breaches of this nature. Any student who attempts to sell tickets to either the All-University Commencement or their individual school ceremony is hereby notified that they are subject to disciplinary action, including not being allowed to participate in any graduation ceremonies or associated festivities, as well as a possible delay in receiving their diploma. A strict enforcement of this policy ensures that there are more tickets available in a lottery pool for deserving students without forcing them to pay scalpers’ fees.
All details for ticket ordering, distribution, attire, and arrival times are outlined below. We have added additional shifts to better accommodate graduates, but still some students must send a designate. The designee need only come during the same times listed below and present a note of authorization and a screenshot of the graduate’s NYU i.d. No student or guest will be admitted to Radio City without the correct ticket.
