Convocation


Congratulations to the Class of 2016!

Here you will find the latest information about the 2016 Commencement Events, including the NYU School of Professional Studies Convocation, NYU Grad Alley, and the NYU Commencement Exercises.


Convocation

In addition to the University Commencement ceremony, the NYU School of 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.

Eligibility

Invitations are emailed to graduates and candidates for graduation for the 2015-2016 academic year—specifically those who have graduated in September 2015 and January 2016, as well as those who will graduate in May 2016.

Invitations

The School's Office of Events will email invitations for this event in February 2016. If you do not receive your Convocation invitation by April 1, please contact the Office at 212-992-9100 to verify your graduation status and email address.

Ceremony

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.

Schedule

Please note that guest seating will begin at 4:00 p.m. for the graduate ceremony and at 3:00 p.m. for the undergraduate ceremony. We will not be able to accommodate guests who arrive earlier.

Photographs

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

Awards/Degrees

Diplomas are not physically awarded during the NYU School of Professional Studies Convocation or during the NYU Commencement. They are mailed approximately ten to twelve weeks after the graduation ceremonies.
