President of Queens College
President Muyskens’ Charge to the Class of 2012
"There is little I can add to all the good words you have heard today, so I am going to throw away the half-hour speech I was going to deliver. Instead, I would like very briefly to say that you students of the class of 2012 have been a remarkable and exceptionally accomplished group, but you are about to become part of an even more accomplished group: the alumni of Queens College."

OVERVIEW OF COMMENCEMENT
Queens College Commencement Day is a wonderful and memorable occasion. It begins at 9 am with the college-wide ceremony (about 2 hours) on the Quad, the grassy plain in the center of the campus. This is followed by many divisional and departmental ceremonies. The day ends with many--but not all--departments holding receptions and parties. For specific information, please contact your department.
Tickets are not needed for the college-wide Commencement on the Quad, which lasts about 2 hours. Thousands of guest seats will be set up for this ceremony and be available on a first-come, first-served basis. (Many guests arrive quite early. College parking lots will open at 7 am; when the lots are filled, the gates must be closed.)
The only ceremony which will require tickets is the Division of Education Ceremony in Colden Auditorium (taking place about 30 minutes after the college-wide Ceremony on the Quad). Tickets will be issued by the Division of Education, not by the Commencement Office. For specifics on obtaining education tickets, please contact the Division of Education.
CLASS OF 2013
Queens College holds its annual formal Commencement exercises for fall, winter, spring and summer graduates at the end of the spring semester in late May. We sincerely hope that mid-year degree candidates and their families return to the campus and enjoy the pomp and circumstance of a Queens College Commencement.
The "degree conferral" date listed on the Registrar’s web page indicates a student's official academic record of when the degree was earned. Diplomas for fall/winter graduates will be printed and available in the beginning of spring.
Commencement Ceremony information will be sent to your QC email and postcards will be mailed to your permanent mailing address. Please make sure the Registrar’s Office has an updated address on file as all graduation and Commencement-related information, including your diploma, will be directed to this address.
