Columbia College Class Day

The Columbia College Class Day ceremony is for all College graduates whose degrees are conferred within the 2017-18 academic year, and their families. During the ceremony, individual students are recognized for their achievements. As their names are read, graduates process across the stage and are photographed.

May Grads: Apply for your degree by December 1

If you couldn't make it to the "Apply for the Degree" event, you'll need to fill out and send your application to by Friday, December 1.

Mark your calendars for "Apply for the Degree" — the event!

Join the senior class councils and advising deans from the Berick Center for Student Advising in Low Library Rotunda for "Apply for the Degree." Your application will be prepared for you — all you'll need to do is review, make any changes and sign! This is also a chance to ask questions about graduation, connect with vendors (class rings!) and pick up giveaways and Insomnia Cookies.

Order your class ring Oct. 3-5!

Tuesday, October 3 through Thursday, October 5, in the bookstore from 12:00-6:00 p.m., class ring representatives from Balfour will be taking orders. For more information, give them a call at 1-877-225-3687 or visit Balfor's website.

Get Your Columbia University Legacy Blazer

Columbia University has created its first Legacy Blazer in collaboration with New York-based bespoke designer Adé Lang.

Register for the Largest Young Alumni Event of the Year!

On June 2, more than 1,500 graduates from the last 10 classes will reconnect and celebrate at Guastavino's. This stunning New York City landmark is known for its sophisticated atmosphere and delicious food. Last year's party sold out, so register now!

Get Tickets to Your Guests BEFORE University Commencement

Guests must have tickets to access campus on the day of University Commencement. Guests will sit on lower campus and graduates will enter on upper campus. Since there will not be a way to move between the two areas on the day of the event, be sure to give your guests their tickets in advance. You can print them out and distribute them the day before or you can send them by email. (Make sure that each ticket printed is unique! Barcodes will only work they first time they are scanned.)

Take the Graduating Student Survey

Complete the survey before University Commencement and you may win $100 worth of Columbia gear, a $200 diploma frame, or Beats by Dre Headphones! Can’t log in to take the survey yet? You’ll be given access once our system processes your graduation record, closer to University Commencement.
