Join us in the countdown to


Commencement will be held on:

May 31, 2017

 Graduation from John Jay College is a moment of triumph for you, your family and all of us at John Jay College. The faculty and staff are excited to participate in commencement in order to celebrate your accomplishments. We are proud of you all! 

Student Transition Programs recommends that graduates and their guests arrive to Arthur Ashe at least 2 hours prior to the ceremony start time to prevent unforseen circumstances such as traffic or transit delays.  Graduates will need to start lining up at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start time. 

In addition, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes since there is a 5-10 minute walk from the subway stop and Citi Field parking lot.
