News Detail

Following a recommendation by the Undergraduate Commencement Committee, the President’s Cabinet approved a reduction from five to four tickets per student in guest tickets issued to each graduating student for the 2010 Undergraduate Commencement ceremonies.

The number of graduates this May is expected to exceed the 2009 totals. The recommendation was based upon the significant increase in student participation, the higher graduation numbers and a general concern for the safety of those attending the event.

Overflow seating with live video streaming will be available in three Park Center locations — Room D-305, the Hall of Fame Room and Room E-201 — and will not require a ticket for admission. Commencement tickets for student volunteers who assisted in prior Commencement ceremonies will continue to be honored.

The Commencement Web site is updated for the 2010 ceremonies. In early January, postcards announcing the live site were mailed to the permanent mailing addresses of all potential graduating students, i.e., those with 85 or more credits. This postcard is the only piece of information that will be mailed.  

All information pertaining to Commencement is available on the SUNY Cortland Web site. Any questions or concerns may be directed via e-mail to Undergraduate Commencement.
