A Message About Commencement

Dear CUNY BA Community,

Unfortunately, we are canceling our Spring 2020 commencement ceremony; an inevitable consequence of the impact of COVID-19.​

Please know your degrees will still be conferred when you have completed all requirements.

I, too, am very disappointed not to celebrate your accomplishment with you, your friends, and families.  We will attempt to acknowledge your milestone perhaps in another way that, although it may not be in person, will convey our sincere pride and honor in having been part of your journey.  

At this moment, the most important thing is for you and your families to remain healthy and safe.  We look forward to reconvening in person when this threat subsides.​
