Dear City Colleges community,

The countdown has begun. 139 days from now, we’re returning to the Wintrust Arena to celebrate City Colleges of Chicago associate degree earners at our 2022 Commencement Ceremony!

Take out your 2022 calendars a few weeks early because graduation is officially taking place on:

 Sunday, May 1, 2022

Our 2022 ceremony will be organized following public health guidelines outlined by the Chicago Department of Public Health. We look forward to sharing additional details in the months to come, including a detailed checklist to help graduates prepare, volunteer opportunities for faculty and staff, and other ways to celebrate the Class of 2022.

Most of all, we can’t wait to watch City Colleges graduates of all ages and backgrounds, and from every corner of the city, walk across the stage and towards their next steps.
