Important Update for Queens Commencement

In an effort to enhance the overall Commencement experience for all graduating students, families, friends, and guests, we are pleased to announce that two separate ceremonies will be held for our graduate and undergraduate students on Sunday, May 18, 2014. 

This decision was reached collectively by several groups comprising undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and administrators who were brought together to discuss issues raised about the length of the joint Commencement ceremony, and concerns about the general program for each of these student populations. By creating two ceremonies, the consensus was that this would allow both our graduate and undergraduate students a more personal and meaningful experience for them and their families and friends, within a much more condensed timeframe. While the joint ceremony lasted nearly three hours, we anticipate that the individual undergraduate and graduate ceremonies will each last less than two hours.

The Undergraduate Level Commencement Ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on the Great Lawn.

The Graduate Level Commencement Ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. on the Great Lawn.

Students graduating on the Queens campus should visit the Queens web pages for specific details. 

As a University, we understand that this is an exciting time for you and your family.  Your hard work and dedication will culminate in your Commencement.  Your participation will greatly enrich this tradition and celebration at St. John’s University.
