Salute to Graduates is often referred to as Graduation.  However, there is a difference between the two.

Salute to Graduates refers to the celebratory ceremony, officiated by a college President, where you share the excitement and importance of your academic accomplishments with peers, family, and friends.

Graduation, on the other hand, is a three-step process consisting of submitting an online application for graduation, completing all academic requirements for your degree, and settling all financial obligations. The administrative process of degree conferral will indicate your official date of graduation.

Guttman has only one Salute to Graduates ceremony that takes place each year, at the end of the Spring I semester, to celebrate the graduation of students from the Fall I, Fall II, Spring I terms and upcoming Spring II term.

If you expect to graduate by the end of Spring I term (June 12, 2020), you must complete an Intent to Graduate Application online on CUNYfirst between April 1, 2020 – May 25, 2020.

If you expect to graduate by the end of Spring II term (August 8, 2020), you must complete an Intent to Graduate Application online on CUNYfirst between June 30, 2020 – July 26, 2020.

Graduation is a three-step process consisting of submitting an online application for graduation, completing all academic requirements for your degree, and settling all financial obligations.

Diplomas will be available for pickup approximately 1-2 months after a degree conferral date. Guttman awards degrees four times a year: January 10 for the Fall I term; March 7 for the Fall II term; June 27 for the Spring I term; and August 23 for the Spring II term.
