Admission tickets: When graduation status is confirmed after May 6, each candidate will receive five admission tickets. One ticket is for the candidate and the other tickets are for their guests. Everyone (including children) must present an admission ticket for entry to the Hall.
If you would like to request additional tickets, please fill out and submit the online Additional Commencement Ticket Request Form. Extra tickets cannot be guaranteed; however, we attempt to honor all requests based on available tickets. All requests must be received before Friday May 9th, 2014.
Ticket pick-up: Candidates will be contacted by e-mail after May 6, when all graduation requirements (as specified on the checklist) have been fulfilled to inform them that their tickets, cap and gown are available for pick-up.
If you are unable to pick up your tickets, cap and gown, we ask that the person you send for these items, present a letter of authorization, with your SVA ID number signed by you.
Please note: We do not mail admission tickets.
