Through the assistance of GreenPace, http://www.pace.edu/sustainability/, we have tried to make even the details of commencement sustainable. Please join us in the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility at Pace University. We know reducing landfills filled with graduation gowns by reusing them and printing programs on recycled paper with soy ink is the just the beginning. We encourage you at cap and gown distribution to join your fellow Pace graduates and alumni since 2009 in the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility. Learn more at: www.pace.edu/greenpledgeAcademic attire consisting of a cap, gown, and hood will be distributed to all graduates participating in the ceremony (see Distribution Dates and Location). Only those graduates participating in academic attire will receive guest admission tickets.
ALL EXTRA GOWNS HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED FOR 2011 GRADUATION.
Caps, gowns, and tickets will be distributed in the Gymnasium of One Pace Plaza on the New York City Campus on the following dates:
If a graduate is unable to pick up tickets on the distribution dates (see Distribution Dates and Locations) that a family member or a friend pick them up. A Pace ID and a letter of authorization signed by the graduate are required to pick up tickets. Tickets must be picked up by the final distribution date; otherwise, they will be forfeited.
A professional photographer will take individual pictures of each graduate during the Commencement ceremony. Proofs will be mailed to you with an order form and pricing information.
If you or any of your guests are disabled and will need special accommodations before, during, or after the ceremony, please notify your student commencement coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to cap and gown distribution.
It is a violation of University policy for anyone to possess or consume any alcoholic beverage during any part of the Commencement program. It is also the policy of Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center that alcoholic beverages of any kind are not allowed in the facility. Any violation of this policy may disqualify a graduate from participation in the Commencement program.
Out of respect for our graduating students, guests, and Commencement speakers, all graduates are required to stay for the entire ceremony. The ceremony should not exceed three hours. Please plan accordingly.
A postcard will be sent to you in April reminding you of the cap and gown distribution dates. Tickets and instructions for the ceremony will be given to you at cap and gown distribution.
