International Guest Invitations

GSAS can provide documentation to help with visas to attend Commencement.

Families of international students sometimes experience difficulty obtaining visas to attend Commencement. Family members who will require US visa stamps must apply to a US embassy or consulate far in advance to complete the process in time. International students who received a November 2022 or who will receive a March 2023 or May 2023 degree may request that the Office of Student Affairs send an invitation letter to their family; this letter may help support the granting of a visa.

To request a letter, please email the GSAS Office of Student Affairs at at least three weeks before your family’s appointment with the embassy or consulate.
