• Congratulations to the Class of 2018!


    To our graduates, we look forward to your participation in the 2018 commencement exercises as a way of sharing this great accomplishment with your fellow students, family, faculty and staff who have supported you on your journey.

    The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at the Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. 

    Did you request extra tickets? Additional tickets are available to those who put their name on the waiting list during cap and gown distribution. The extra tickets can be picked up in room M115 on the following dates and times:

    • Friday, June 1 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    • Monday, June 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

    Photo ID is required. Please be aware that Monday, during the time specified above, is the absolute last opportunity to pick up any and all tickets; however, graduates still in need of regalia can purchase from Herff Jones at the Barclays Center on the day of commencement, June 5th, beginning at 7:30 a.m. The price is $35 and only cash will be accepted.


    The ceremony will be approximately four (4) hours. You must stay for the entire event.

    If you leave Barclays Center at any time on the day of the ceremony, you will not be able to reenter. Cell phone usage is not permitted in the Barclays Center. The College will not be responsible for any personal belongings (i.e., bags, strollers, umbrellas, and other miscellaneous items).



    As a graduate, you do not need an admission ticket for yourself. Your cap and gown will serve as your admission ticket.

    You will be given three (3) tickets for your family and friends on the day your major is assigned to pick up regalia. (See pickup schedule below.) You may request additional tickets at the ticket station. If extra tickets become available, you’ll receive notification through your LaGuardia email on Friday, June 1 with instructions for picking them up.

    Due to the volume of requests we receive, we kindly ask that you do not call or email to check on the status of additional tickets.
