On Wednesday, May 30th Baruch College will celebrate the 2018 Commencement Exercises at the Barclays Center. Thank you for your participation as we honor our Baruch graduates and their accomplishments on this very auspicious occasion. The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.

Location and time of arrival

Faculty who are participating in the ceremonies should enter Barclays through the VIP CK Entrance (Calvin Klein) located on Atlantic Avenue. Baruch student volunteers wearing Commencement shirts and directional signage will be placed around the plaza area to help point you in the right direction. Make sure you bring appropriate ID and travel lightly. Barclay's security will be present at the front and will wand and check your belongings before you are allowed to gain entry. Robing, and assembly for the procession, will all take place in the Calvin Klein Courtside Club.

If you are attending the ceremony, will be participating in the procession and seated on the stage, plan to arrive by 8:30 a.m. This will give enough time to make your way to the Club, change into your robes and enjoy light refreshments.

If you are participating as a Faculty Marshall and assisting us with Commencement, a Faculty Marshal prep meeting is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Monday, May 21st in Newman Vertical Campus Room 3-215. Details regarding Commencement meeting location, time of arrival, robing and commencement tasks will be provided at this meeting and will also be emailed to all Marshals.


If you have already ordered your academic regalia, you may pick it up on either May 22nd or May 23rd between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. in the Newman Vertical Campus Multipurpose Room (NVC 1-107). Garments not picked up by noon on Friday, May 25th will be available in the faculty robing area located at the Calvin Klein Courtside Club at the Barclays Center.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, please remember to return your cap and gown to the Robing area. Please do not return academic regalia back at the College.

If you have not ordered your attire, we will have spare regalia available to you onsite at the Barclays Center that can be used for the duration of the ceremony.
