Graduation Invitation Letters

Sacred Heart University is no longer issuing graduation invitation letters.

Per U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs, graduation invitation letters do not assist in the issuance of visitor visas for family members who wish to attend an international student’s commencement ceremony. We suggest printing your Sacred Heart University Commencement RSVP email for each person you are inviting to the ceremony to assist in the explanation of the purpose of his or her trip if needed. For further information regarding B1 visitor visas, please visit the U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs website. Please see the sample invitation letter that you as the student can write for your family member(s) to bring with them for their visa appointment.
