All students wishing to participate in commencement must register and pay for their cap and gown via Eventbrite by May 3rd.

  • If you are renting a black cap and black gown for your home college’s ceremony, you may use the same attire for our event; in that case, your fee will be $55.00 (you’ll get a CUNY BA sash and tassel).
  • If you need all of the commencement attire (black cap and gown, sash and tassel), your fee will be $70.

You will receive an email in mid-May with details about picking up the cap and gown, diplomas, directions to the Graduate Center, etc. Details will also be posted on our website.
