Students will be required to RSVP and once committed to a particular Commencement ceremony will not be able to switch dates. This is absolutely necessary to stay within the allowable New York State guidelines and to avoid creating logistical problems with the complicated set-up. At the time of RSVP, students will be able to reserve 2 guest tickets that must be presented for entry to the event. RSVP will be available for 10 days once opened; students will be emailed the RSVP link information when available.
