NYU-SCPS Convocation

In addition to the University Commencement ceremony, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies hosts separate events, one for its graduate and one for its undergraduate students and their guests. Along with your family and friends, you will join your fellow graduates as we celebrate your achievements.

Please read the information below and look for additional details in your invitations.


Invitations are mailed to graduates and candidates for graduation for the 2013-2014 academic year—specifically those who have graduated in September 2013 and January 2014, as well as those who will graduate in May 2014.


The NYU-SCPS Office of Events will mail invitations for this event in mid-March. If you do not receive your Convocation invitation by April 6, please contact the Office at (212) 992-9100 to verify your graduation status and mailing address.  


The ceremony will begin with several speeches that are followed by the presentation of graduates to the dean. During this presentation, each student will be invited to march across the stage to be recognized. 


Please note that guest seating will begin at 11:00 a.m. for the graduate ceremony; and 5:00 p.m. for the undergraduate ceremony. We will not be able to accommodate guests who arrive earlier.


Graduates will be able to purchase pictures taken during the ceremony. Details will be distributed on-site, during the student line-up.


Diplomas are not physically awarded during the NYU-SCPS Convocation or during the NYU Commencement. They are mailed approximately eight weeks after the graduation ceremonies.
