Invitations and Tickets
If you submitted an online Application for Graduation and were approved to participate in the May 2020 commencement ceremony, you are guaranteed:
- five tickets for the commencement concert (Friday, May 8) and
- five invitations for the commencement ceremony (Saturday, May 9).
Information on the commencement concert and ceremony can be found under the Schedule of Events.
You must bring your Berklee ID or another form of photo identification, such as a passport or driver’s license, with you to pick up invitations and tickets.
Any student who borrowed a federal loan while attending Berklee will be contacted by Student Financial Services to complete online exit counseling.
Pick-up is Monday, March 9–Friday, March 13 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m at 921 Boylston Street, room 500.
Note that students participating in the commencement ceremony do not need an invitation to attend commencement, but they do need a ticket to attend the concert.
If you are expecting a large number of guests, speak with your fellow students to see if they have any invitations and/or tickets that they will not be using. Unclaimed invitations/tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Diversity, and Inclusion (login required), 921 Boylston Street, room 500, beginning on Monday, March 23. You can pick up a maximum of two additional invitations/tickets each day until all invitations/tickets are gone.
Special accommodations have been made only for seniors who are studying abroad or working during the day at an internship, and who are unable to come to the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs (login required) between March 9 and March 13.
If you are unable to pick up your invitations/tickets in person, please send an email to email@example.com from your Berklee email account by 12:00 p.m. on March 6. In the email, you must indicate the name of the person you are giving permission to pick up your invitations/tickets. They must bring a photo ID.
Graduates or their guests planning to attend any of the commencement events who may need special accommodations on the basis of disability should contact Donna Rose Desilus, Office of Conference Services and Events (login required), at 617-747-6168 or firstname.lastname@example.org by May 4.
