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.
