All-University Commencement Tickets

Tickets are required for the All-University Commencement. No person can enter Yankee Stadium without a ticket. 

Ticket ordering information has not yet been announced for the May 2024 All-University Commencement ceremony. In recent years, candidates could request one (1) candidate ticket for themselves and up to two (2) guest tickets, with the option to enter a lottery for one (1) additional guest ticket.

Candidates are not automatically granted tickets for themselves or their guests. All candidates must place an order to reserve tickets before the deadline (date to be announced).

Ticket ordering instructions will be emailed to eligible students in mid-March 2024.

Children who are 3 years old or younger and less than 30 inches tall do not need a ticket for entry. However, the child must sit on an adult’s lap during the ceremony without obstructing the view of other guests. Children are prohibited from sitting with a graduating student inside the stadium.

School Ceremony Tickets

School ceremonies and All-University Commencement are separate events, and both require specific tickets to that event. School ceremony tickets must be ordered through the candidate’s school, and the tickets will be distributed by the individual schools. Schools will communicate directly with their candidates about how and when to order their school ceremony tickets.

Prohibition of Ticket Sales

NYU strictly prohibits the direct or indirect sale or auction of All-University Commencement tickets. Tickets are free and available only to eligible candidates in the Class of 2024 and their guests. Ticket(s) may not be used for advertising, promotion (including contests, giveaways, or sweepstakes), or other trade or commercial purposes.  Students engaging in such activities, as well as any other activity that disrupts the administration of the ceremony and/or violates the Yankee Stadium Security Policies or any NYU student conduct policy, will be subject to NYU disciplinary sanctions, including without limitation the delayed issuance of a degree or diploma. The Yankees and NYU reserve the right to investigate violations of the License applicable to NYU's use of Yankee Stadium.
