If the degree candidate lives out of state or cannot pick up academic attire at the times allotted, a third party may pick up academic attire with the following documentation:
If, for some reason, it is impossible to get the candidate's NYU ID, you MUST submit a photocopy of BOTH SIDES OF THE NYU ID CARD. The N# on the reverse will be required.
If someone else is also picking up your All-University tickets, make two copies of these documents. One set will be collected as proof of third party academic attire pick-up and will not be returned to you.
There are several ways to return your academic attire. Remember to hold on to your academic attire until after your last use, either your school ceremony (if attending) or the All-University Commencement.
