Parents, Friends and Guests

  • Venue: NJCU commencement will be held at the Prudential Center on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 9:00am. 

    The Prudential Center can accommodate as many guests as you would like to bring, therefore, no tickets are required for entry.

    If you or your guest requires special seating, you will be accommodated. Special seating is available throughout the center. Parents, friends, and guests of the graduates will enter the Prudential Center through the PNC Tower.

    Immediately after the ceremony, students and guests must meet outside the Prudential Center. Guests will exit the center from the concourse PNC Tower and graduates will exit through the Lafayette Tower. No one will be allowed to remain in the lobby or to re-enter the lobby. Please plan to meet friends and relatives outside the Prudential Center or at their cars.

    Please remember that graduate and doctoral students will be returning regalia before they leave the Prudential Center. Undergraduates may keep their commencement regalia. Pictures with family and graduates in full academic attire must be taken prior to the ceremony beginning.

    Please note: Traffic is normally heavy during the morning rush hour on roads leading to the Prudential Center. In addition, construction on the Pulaski Skyway could cause additional significant delays to your travel time. Plan accordingly. 

    Please visit the Prudential Center website for directions and parking information.
