The 113th Juilliard School Commencement Exercises will take place at 11am on Friday, May 18, 2018, in Alice Tully Hall.

Juilliard welcomes all family members and guests of our graduating students to Commencement. However, tickets to the Commencement ceremony are very limited. Each graduating student participating in the ceremony will receive two tickets; doctoral candidates are entitled to four tickets.

Graduating students received their tickets when they submitted their cap and gown forms in mid-March. Students who adhered to Commencement requirements and deadlines were able to enter into a ticket lottery for the chance of obtaining one additional ticket, which took place in late March. At this point, there are no more tickets to the Commencement ceremony available. Tickets to the ceremony are not available for purchase.

There will be a standby line to get into the ceremony on the morning of Commencement. Additionally, the ceremony will be livestreamed on the Juilliard web site to anyone who wishes to watch from home. To view the live stream, please visit

Accessible seating tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Juilliard will make every effort to accommodate family members and guests without accessible seating tickets on the morning of Commencement. However, accessible seating is limited and advanced planning is strongly encouraged. Please note that the livestream on the Juilliard website will be closed-captioned. Should you or a guest require captions at the ceremony, please contact the Office of Academic Support and Disability Services at Additional questions regarding accessibility accommodation needs for Commencement events should be directed to

Detailed information about Commencement procedures was emailed to all graduating students in late February. Students who cannot find this information should email the Registrar's Office at
