Graduation information for students and guests.


Graduates and their invited guests will celebrate Commencement Exercises on Wednesday, June 1, at 11:00 a.m. at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).  Tickets are required to enter NJPAC (all students received guest tickets).

Graduates must arrive at the law school by 9:45 a.m. for line-up and their guests should arrive at NJPAC promptly. The outside/main doors to the venue will open at 10:00 a.m. (60 minutes prior to the ceremony). At that time security will begin to complete COVID-19 check-in and allow guests into the building. The internal doors to the theater will open at 10:30 a.m. (30 minutes before the ceremony).

COVID-19 Information for Guests (required for admission)

All guests 5 years of age and older must show either proof of vaccination or proof of a negative, professionally administered COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours prior to arrival in order to enter the building. Professionally administered rapid tests are acceptable, but we cannot verify results from home tests. Proof will be checked at the door by NJPAC staff. Face coverings are encouraged.
