Graduate Salute


Congratulations! After years of hard work you are about to receive the CCNY degree that you have earned! Finally, no more late-night caffeine runs or getting frustrated if your printer does not work. This is a time when everyone is happy and proud. You will soon go off fully equipped to apply your skill set on the professional landscape.

But before you depart, we want to assist you in making your graduation a day to remember. The College is sponsoring a preparation event called "Graduate Salute", a one-stop opportunity to glide you through the process of getting ready for your graduation. This event, which is offered on two days, offers all the information and services you will need for a smooth and unforgettable Commencement Day in one convenient location.
