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 2023 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.

School Ceremony Tickets

Most NYU schools will provide tickets for their individual school ceremonies. School ceremony tickets must be ordered through the candidate’s school, and the tickets will be distributed by the individual schools.
