Commencement and Graduation
Commencement is the celebration in May for students who are on track to graduate. It should be noted that participating in the Commencement Ceremony does not indicate graduation from Marymount Manhattan College. Students officially graduate only after completing all degree requirements.
Graduation occurs once a student has completed all degree requirements and met all financial obligations to the College. The official graduation date is based on when a student completes all degree requirements.
Applying to Graduate
All graduates must submit a Graduation Application on MMC Connect typically by November 15. Upon submitting the Graduation Application, the Registrar’s Office will review your application for any outstanding academic requirements. All notifications will be sent to your MMC email.
It is important to apply by November 15 to ensure you are on track to graduate. Students who are cleared late for graduation will not have their name included in the in the Commencement Program.
Ordering Caps and Gowns
The caps and gowns are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and they are yours to keep. The link to order the cap and gown will be sent to the student’s MMC email. There is no charge for this order.
The cap and gowns will ship directly to the student’s preferred address. Cap and gowns are shipped within two weeks of your order. Please allow for delivery time in planning to submit your photos for your senior portraits.
