Commencement Ceremony Invitation and Concert Ticket Distribution
All students who have submitted an Application for Graduation form to the Office of the Registrar by October 14, 2011 for the May 2012 Commencement Ceremony will be guaranteed a maximum set of six tickets for the Commencement Concert (Friday, May 11) and six invitations for the Commencement ceremony (Saturday, May 12). (Information on the Commencement concert and ceremony can be found under Schedule of Events.)
Both invitations and tickets will be available for pickup Monday, March 12 through Friday, March 16 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. 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, but they 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. You can also check with the Office of the Registrar after April 17 regarding the availability of extra invitations/tickets. In the event that there are extras, they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Exceptions can be 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 12 and 16.. If this is the case, either send an email to 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) or call Sarah Landry, the Graduation and Curriculum Coordinator, at 617-747-2470 to discuss other arrangements. You will have until April 17 to pick up your invitation/tickets.
Graduates or their guests planning to attend any of the commencement events who may need special accommodations on the basis of disability should contact Maria DeMaio, travel and events liaison, Office of Meetings and Events, at 617 747-6073 or email@example.com by May 1. 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.
