News & Announcements

What happens at Ticket Distribution?

Use our handy online guide to navigate the process and options of ticket distribution.

I Can't Get to Ticket Distribution!

If you have extenuating circumstances, you may send someone to pick up your tickets for you. Your proxy must present a completed proxy form and his/her CUID at the designated University Commencement ticket distribution location to pick up your tickets.

...And After I Get My Tickets?

Keep them in a safe place, and don't lose them! They cannot be replaced. Once you have them, let your parents know, and come up with a plan for getting the tickets to your guests before the morning of Commencement. (You think you'll have time that day, but you won't!)

We Like You a Lot, But We Don't Like It When You Sell Your Tickets!

The selling or buying of University Commencement tickets is strictly prohibited. Tickets hold no official resale value and are solely for the purpose of allowing the guests of graduating students to attend Commencement. Unwanted tickets should be returned to the respective school.

Commencement Week App Now Available

Check out the Columbia University Commencement Week 2014 mobile app for essential on-the-go Commencement Day, Baccalaureate Service, and Class Day details! Check ceremony schedules, understand campus access, view maps, and more.

Professional Portraits from GradImages

Come dressed in business attire to sit for your professional portrait for social media and networking. No sales pitch, no sitting fee, and nothing to purchase at the event. Your proofs will be available to purchase online.

Submit Photos for the Class Day Slide Show(s)

Share your favorite Columbia memories! Submit up to three photos to the GradZone webform to be shown in the slide show that will play during Class Day before you process. Photos sent previously to gradzone@columbia.edu will also be included.
