Below you will find everything you need to know to prepare for the big day. Follow this step-by-step guide to make sure you’re prepared for the big day:
As a graduate, you do not need an admission ticket for yourself. Your cap and gown will serve as your admission ticket.
You will be given five (5) tickets for your family and friends on the day your major is assigned to pick up regalia. (See pickup schedule below.) You may request additional tickets at the ticket station. If extra tickets become available, you’ll receive notification through your LaGuardia email on Friday, May 31 with instructions for picking them up.
Due to the volume of requests we receive, we kindly ask that you do not call or email to check on the status of additional tickets.
