Commencement Vaccination Policy

Graduates will be required to attest to compliance with the policy below when ordering their Commencement tickets.

All members of the NYU community, including NYU Commencement attendees, are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive a COVID-19 booster shot (if eligible for the booster based on CDC criteria). You and your guests must be able to produce proof of compliance if requested.

[UPDATED] As of May 3, NYU strongly recommends that Commencement and Grad Alley guests wear a well-fitted mask at graduation-related events (unless otherwise required by the venue). Guests should plan to have their own masks available. Keep in mind that New York City, NYU, and venue mask policies are responsive to the most up-to-date COVID-19 public health conditions and are subject to change at any time.
