Dear Students, Faculty and Staff of John Jay College:

I am pleased to write to you to provide details regarding the graduation ceremonies that we are planning for our students who will receive their degrees this academic year. It is hard to believe, but we are less than three months from the end of the school year and the celebrations that mark the awarding of degrees to our students.

I am delighted to announce that our 2012 Graduation will be held on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at the Jacob Javits Center North at 40th Street and Eleventh Avenue. This is a brand new, large and impressive facility that is a convenient location for our community. There will be two graduation ceremonies – one at 10:30 a.m. and one at 3:30 p.m. – duplicating the timing of the successful ceremonies held last year. Each student will receive three (3) tickets for family members and friends.

In the coming weeks, we will be furnishing you with more details about Graduation. Please mark May 31st on your calendars and begin making plans for this important ceremony. If you are planning to attend, you must file for Graduation by March 7, 2012.

Please refer any student-related questions or concerns to the Office of Student Transition Programs by contacting them at Please refer all faculty-related questions or concerns to Maribel Perez at 212.237.8802 or

For my part, I look forward to this festive celebration and to shaking the hands of each of our graduates as they walk across the stage of Jacob Javits Center North.
