Each graduate planning to attend the May 11th, 2024 commencement ceremony must register both themselves and their guests using the ticketing link which was sent out via DYU Email.

The deadline to register for both graduate & guest tickets is April 20th, 2024.

Graduates may register for up to (3) guests to attend commencement at the HarborCenter. Guests under the age of 2 years old that plan to sit on an adult's lap for the duration of the commencement ceremony do not need a ticket. Should additional guest tickets be available, details on how to acquire more will be provided after the April 20th registration deadline to those who requested additional guest tickets using the Eventbrite registration form linked through the graduate’s DYU email. You will need to select (1) graduate ticket and anywhere from 0-3 guest tickets. To complete ticket registration, please be prepared to enter your School ID number. Guests without a ticket will not be allowed entry into the commencement ceremony.


You must order your regalia by March 15, 2024 in order to avoid late fees.

A cap, gown and hood are required for Commencement. Regalia is for sale through the D'Youville Campus Store with partnership from Herff Jones.
