CCNY graduates

Friday, May 30, 2014 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Commencement Plaza @ 135th Street at Convent Avenue

Read the President's Letter to Graduates >>

Since 1853, commencement ceremonies have been held at City College to honor the students in reaching a significant milestone in their educational careers. It is also a special occasion for the parents and families of these students who have often made big sacrifices to allow their children to attend college.
If you cannot attend Commencement, the ceremony will be webcast live on May 30th; go to the College homepage or go to the live-streaming site and watch it from anywhere in the world!
This year the College will recognize students graduating with honors at the individual school and division ceremonies.

INFORMATION ABOUT TICKETS FOR GUESTS

Please note: each graduate participating in the May 30th Commencement will be given three tickets ONLY for their guests, due to fire department codes.  March 7, 2014 is the last day to apply for May 2014 Graduation.  If you miss this deadline, your name will not appear in the Commencement program.

If you fail to apply for May graduation by the March 7 deadline, or if you plan to complete your degree requirements in the summer, you must apply for September graduation by May 1.

You will be able to receive tickets and be able to pick up your cap and gown, however, your name will not appear in the May 2014 Commencement Program booklet but will appear in the May 2015 program.

SCHOOL AND DIVISION CEREMONIES

In addition to the College wide Commencement on the morning of May 30th, each school and division of the College will have its own graduation ceremony.  Here students march across the stage individually, in cap and gown, as their names are called. 
Students with Latin Honors: Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Cum Laude will be honored at these ceremonies.
  • summa cum laude: awarded to students whose average in all subject is at least 3.8
  • magna cum laude: awarded to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.5
  • cum laude: awarded to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.2

Latin honors are computed on the basis of all college level work, Students must have a minimum of 60 local credits taken at CCNY and your cumulative GPA must be at least 3.2 to be considered for Latin Honors.  May candidates for graduation are candidates for honors; the determination of these honors is final when all work is completed.  All information about graduation honors is provided by the Registrar; questions concerning graduation honors status and GPA should be addressed to that office.  Master's degree and second-degree students are not eligible for graduation honors.   

Families are invited, and professional photographers are there to take pictures, and a reception follows.   Additional information about these individual ceremonies will come from the Dean's offices.
