The Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the President of the College, the Dean of the graduate's School, and the Bishop of Albany, will congratulate graduates as their names are read and graduates cross the platform. At this time, you will receive your diploma cover. For students who have completed all requirements by May 17, 2020, the actual diplomas will be mailed to your address noted on the degree application, about four weeks after Commencement.


No diplomas are issued until a student completes all of his or her degree requirements. Students completing degree requirements after May 17, 2020, are considered to graduate at the next (appropriate) time: August, January or whenever requirements are completed. No diplomas will be issued to anyone who has an outstanding balance on his/her student account. 

No transcripts will be issued until student has paid all bills.
