Invitations and Tickets
All students who submitted an online Application for Graduation form and were approved to participate in the May 2017 commencement ceremony will be guaranteed a maximum set of six tickets for the commencement concert (Friday, May 12) and five invitations for the commencement ceremony (Saturday, May 13). (Information on the commencement concert and ceremony can be found under Schedule of Events.)
Both invitations and tickets will be available for pick up Monday, March 6 through Friday, March 10 from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Office of the Registrar, 921 Boylston Street, Suite 120 (first floor of the Uchida Building). Be sure to bring your Berklee ID or another form of photo identification, such as a passport or driver’s license, with you.
Note: Students participating in the commencement ceremony do not need an invitation to attend commencement, but will need a ticket to attend the concert.
Students who anticipate high family attendance are encouraged to speak with their fellow students, as many will not be using all of their invitations and/or tickets. Any unclaimed invitations/tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis at the Office of the Registrar starting on Monday, March 27.
Special accommodations have been made only for those seniors who are studying abroad or working during the day at an internship and are therefore unable to come to the Office of the Registrar between March 6 through 10. You must send an email to the firstname.lastname@example.org from your Berklee email account giving permission for someone else to pick up your invitations/tickets (they will need to bring a photo ID) before March 27.
Graduates or their guests planning to attend any of the commencement events who may need special accommodations on the basis of disability should contact Christina Quarles, Conference Services and Events, at 617-747-2232 by May 8. Guests are encouraged to provide as much advance notice as possible prior to the start of an event to help ensure that their request for special assistance may be met.
