• LaGuardia's 48th Graduating Class

    To the Class of 2020:

    All the faculty and staff of LaGuardia Community College recognize that reaching graduation is an incredible milestone – and doing so under the current circumstances is arguably more significant.

    As Chancellor Félix Matos Rodriguez noted in an earlier update, traditional commencement ceremonies have been postponed across CUNY for spring 2020; but that does not change our desire to celebrate your accomplishments and to mark this special occasion.

    We also recognize that nothing can take the place of walking into a glittering venue in a cap and gown, and we still want to give you that opportunity and so the Class of 2020 is invited to participate in the June 2021 Commencement Exercises. RSVP information will be communicated later this summer.

    These changes and circumstances do not change the date of your graduation – diplomas will reflect the proper date that degree requirements were completed.

    We look forward to celebrating with you!

    Dr. Paul Arcario
    Interim President
