Congratulations-- you're almost there.

Few events in life carry the sense of accomplishment that comes with graduation. Congratulations on reaching that milestone! Here is some basic information to make your Commencement day as smooth as possible:

  • Academic concerns. Remember, only those students whose academic record has been reviewed and certified by the Registrar’s Office will be allowed to participate in Commencement.
  • Location. Commencement takes place at the Times Union Center (51 South Pearl Street, Albany, NY 12207). Use the following links for information on directions and transportation to the site.
  • Invitations. Students are responsible for inviting guests. Tickets are not required; however, guests may be required to name the student they are coming to watch.
