Additional Information for Graduation

At the Ceremony, your name will be announced and you will receive your diploma case. The actual diploma will be mailed to you with a copy of your unofficial transcript for your records, after final grades are turned in and requirements verified. Students completing degree/certificate requirements during the summer will receive their diplomas in September, with an August 30 graduation date. Only one diploma cover will be issued per student.

Seating under the tent will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A limited number of reserved handicapped seats will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Graduates and their families may park in the lower and upper parking lots with Shuttle bus service available. A limited number of handicapped parking spaces will be available. Graduates and guests with mobility issues will be directed by Security to a drop off location near the tent and then to available handicapped parking spaces.


The Commencement Ceremony will be conducted rain or shine. In the event of severe storms and heavy rains, the procession may be canceled with students already seated under the tent at the start of the ceremony. If the storms are severe enough to postpone the ceremony, the rain date will be Thursday, May 14 at 6:00 pm. The postponement will be announced on the College website and in a Regroup Alert.

If you or any of your guests are physically challenged or have special seating needs, please contact Annemarie Sacco at 973-300-2153, no later than two weeks prior to the ceremony. Both disability parking and courtesy seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
