Commencement 2022

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from Suffolk County Community College! Our commencement ceremonies are an opportunity to be recognized for your hard work and achievement by your family, friends, guests and the entire college community.


  • Commencement will take place on Thursday, May 19, 2022, in the Suffolk Federal Credit Union Arena on the Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood.

  • There will be a morning ceremony at 9:00 a.m. and an afternoon ceremony at 1:00 p.m. Graduating students must select the ceremony that they would prefer to attend. In the event one of the ceremonies reaches full audience capacity, graduates will be directed to RSVP for the alternate ceremony time. If both ceremonies reach capacity, a third ceremony at 5 p.m. will be added.

  • Ceremonies typically last between 2-3 hours.

Please explore this website to find all of the information you will need to participate in our upcoming commencement ceremonies. If you have any questions, please reach out via email to commencement@sunysuffolk.edu. We look forward to celebrating with you soon!
