The CSI Commencement Committee is developing an alternate date for the Class of 2020 Ceremony.
Details will be announced when we know more about the reopening of NYS. To be clear, this will have no impact on diplomas. At the completion of the spring semester, all degrees will be conferred as scheduled. SENIORS, please update your preferred email address in CUNYfirst so we may contact you with Commencement-related news. For now, please read below for the most current information as of June 9, 2020.
Salute to the Class of 2020
Dear Class of 2020,
The faculty, staff, and administration congratulate you as you embark on your next journey. We know your senior year did not progress as planned, and we are working on creative ways to honor the Class of 2020 once conditions improve.
We look forward to being able to celebrate in person. For now, we want to express how proud we are of you with a video tribute to recognize your achievement and the strength and fortitude you have demonstrated during this challenging time. We know that even during difficult times, you will persevere and thrive.
We salute you!
Caps and Gowns
The College's Bookstore (Barnes & Noble) has coordinated the distribution of caps and gowns for the Class of 2020. If you are interested in purchasing a cap and gown, you may do so through a customized website created by Oak Hall.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Picture This, your official senior photographer is closed at this time. They regret not being able to take your graduation photos at this important time in your life. We will notify you as soon as they are able to open and resume taking senior portraits.
We are switching diploma vendors and will be moving to direct mail of diplomas for our June and August graduates. More information regarding when to expect your diploma in the mail will be forthcoming, including how to access a free PDF version. For those members of the Class of 2020 who received their degrees in January, we are currently working on getting your diplomas to you.
