NYIT's 58th Annual Commencement will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2019 at NYIT's Long Island campus in Old Westbury beginning at 9 a.m.
Faculty participation is vital to the success of NYIT's commencement. Your presence at the ceremony means a great deal to our graduates.
ALL faculty should report to the gym on commencement morning by 8 a.m. The faculty lounge will be located in the gymnasium and will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The lounge will offer regalia pick-up and drop-off, breakfast and lunch, and nearby restrooms. Please arrive early and allow yourself time to park.
All faculty (including College of Osteopathic Medicine faculty, librarians, and members of the staff and administration who require regalia) will be able to wear their own school regalia on commencement day. NYIT gowns will be available as well. There is an inventory of NYIT gowns to accommodate most needs.
