Class of 2016

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 the email you have provided on the RSVP form and a postcard 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. 

Transportation: Please be aware that all shuttle bus policies will remain in effect for the day. Only Queens College students who show valid ID will be allowed to board the bus. Please arrange alternate transportation for family and guests.
