• The New School’s 87th Annual University Commencement Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 19, 2023, at 11:30 a.m. EDT on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. We invite graduates, their families and friends, students, faculty, staff, and alumni to join us for this celebration.

    University Commencement

    University Commencement is a festive occasion with lively student performances, the presentation of honorary degrees and distinguished teaching awards, inspiring speeches, and, of course, the conferral of degrees. At this ceremony, graduates are recognized collectively as part of their academic program. Commencement celebrates the shared experience of our graduates and is the most significant academic milestone of their New School career.

    School Recognition Ceremonies

    Before University Commencement, each of our colleges hosts special recognition ceremonies for its graduates. It is at these school ceremonies that students are recognized individually by name. Additional information about guest tickets and registration will be announced in the coming weeks. School recognition ceremonies will be held on or near the New School campus.
