September 2014 | Students from each of Rutgers’ three main campuses will be present for commencement on May 15. They will be permitted three guests and one parking hangtag apiece.


On Monday afternoon, Rutgers University announced that New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical Health Services students who have already signed up to attend commencement will receive four tickets – one for themselves plus three family members.

Guests will also be granted one parking hangtag per graduate.

The tickets are not transferable and will be coded to their recipients, according to the post. Every guest, even children or seniors, will be required to have one.

Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-Camden graduating students will be able to attend commencement as well – trains are being chartered from NJ Transit. These students and their guests will also be able to sit at High Point Solutions Stadium.

The actual ticketing procedures have not yet been determined, said Steve Manas, a public relations specialist with University News and Media Relations.

“Rutgers will be providing viewing sites at other venues — the College Avenue, Livingston and Busch Student Centers, for example — for additional guests,” said Interim Secretary of the University Kimberlee Pastva.

Pastva said in an email that further details will be released during the week of May 9.
