Dear Class of 2019:
I hope this message finds you well and that you are enjoying the Fall semester. I am writing to let you know the dates and times for the 2019 Law School Graduation Ceremony and the University Commencement Ceremony (both of which will be here before you know it!).
The 2019 Law School Graduation Ceremony will take place on Monday, May 20, 2019, and is scheduled to begin at 5:00 pm (gates will open at 4:00 pm). The ceremony will take place on the South Lawn (in front of Butler Library) and is a ticketed event. Each student will receive 6 (six) tickets. In the spring semester, Student Services will hold a lottery for students who need more than 6 (six) tickets.
The 2019 Columbia University Commencement Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Commencement will take place on the Morningside Campus and is also a ticketed event. Each student will receive 2 (two) tickets for Commencement. As Commencement includes students from every Columbia school or affiliate institution who graduated in October 2018, February 2019, and May 2019 the University is unable to provide additional tickets.
You will all be invited to attend a graduation information meeting in February where specifics about the ceremony will be covered. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please let me know!
