The valedictorian and salutatorian for commencement exercises are chosen from among the June baccalaureate candidates and the graduates of the previous August and February. The two students with the highest GPA are awarded these distinctions.
In the event of identical grade point averages, the students with the greatest number of credits earned at John Jay College (up to 120 credits) will be designated valedictorian and salutatorian. In the event that two students have identical grade point averages and have earned the same number of credits at the College (up to 120 credits), they will be declared co-valedictorians and no salutatorian will be designated. In the event that three or more students have identical GPAs and have earned the same number of credits at the College (up to 120 credits), the valedictorian and salutatorian will be selected by the Committee on Undergraduate Honors, Prizes and Awards.
