Friends and Family
You may bring as many guests as you would like (no tickets are required), however, seating in the auditorium will be on a first come first served basis. We will have an overflow area with seating and a live video feed for guests who arrive late.
We want all of the important people in your life to join in celebrating you, even the little ones. Childcare arrangements are not available, however children are welcome as long as they remain with a responsible adult (other than yourself) for the entire ceremony. Guests are asked to please take crying or disruptive children out of the auditorium promptly and may find the overflow room an easier place to watch from.
We will send invitations to Faculty Mentors, but a personal invitation from you will be much more meaningful, so visit, email or call your Mentor and ask them to attend. (Mentors who wish to participate in the academic procession will have to register with CUNY BA.)
Guests from Abroad
If you need a letter from our office to a foreign embassy or consulate requesting permission for family members or friends to travel to the U.S. on a non-immigrant visa for the ceremony, please put your request in writing to Analie Cruz, CUNY BA Office Assistant with this information: full name(s) of relative/friend, relationship to you, name and the mailing address of the embassy/consulate. If you are unable to find out the name and address of the embassy or consulate to which this information should be sent, refer to http://usembassy.state.gov/. We will prepare this letter for you to mail or fax to the embassy. Make your request now as there can be long waits for visas.
