Commencement Ceremony

On May 30, 2019, NYU Shanghai will honor the graduating Class of 2019 at our Third Commencement Exercises. Our graduates will walk the stage at the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center and receive their diplomas from Chancellor Yu and Vice Chancellor Lehman.  



Attend the Ceremony


Each graduating student may order up to four Family Tickets. Students who wish to invite more than four guests will be able to request Additional Family Tickets when ordering their allocated Family Tickets. Additional Family Tickets will be allocated by lottery after all ticket orders are received. Students will be notified by email in March the total number of tickets they have been allocated.


All guests MUST have a ticket to attend the commencement ceremony. Please note that the Ceremony is not a suitable environment for young children, and those under the age of seven will not be allowed in the hall.


Tickets will not be mailed. Graduates can collect their Family Tickets on campus one week before the ceremony. All tickets are free of charge.
