Are you planning to participate in Winter Commencement? Are you getting excited about graduating? We are.

SUNY Plattsburgh will host the Cardinal Graduation Expo 12-- 6 p.m., Monday, Oct. 23, 2017, in the Cardinal Lounge (second floor), Angell College Center. Students planning to graduate during the Winter Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017 can attend the Grad Expo and purchase caps and gowns, commencement announcements, class rings, diploma frames and other gift items relating to Commencement.

This is also a special opportunity for those students who have not filed their Application for Diploma to do so. If they submit their applications at the Cardinal Graduation Expo, their names will be listed in the Winter Commencement Program.

There's a lot going on at the Expo.

Students will be able to purchase assorted graduation items through the College Store at the Grad Expo including:

  • Graduation regalia (caps, gowns)
  • Announcements
  • College rings
  • Diploma frames
  • Prints
  • Portfolios

Vendors will be here that day to meet with you about your specific needs. You will also be able to meet with members of several offices on campus to get answers to questions, including:

  • College Store
  • Josten's 
  • Plattsburgh Alumni Association

Not graduating in December, but planning for the Spring 2017 Commencement Ceremony? Stop in anyway.

While this is geared for students graduating during Winter Commencement, you can do some early planning for that big day next May. We are also planning for the Spring Cardinal Graduation Expo (Date to be announced in late fall 2017.)

Unable to attend the Expo? We got you covered.

Students who cannot attend the Cardinal Graduation Expo may purchase graduation items at the College Store during regular business hours. If you are unable to obtain your cap and gown prior to the ceremony, you will be able to pick them up as late as the morning prior to the ceremony at the College Store.

If you are not on campus during the fall semester due to student teaching, study abroad, internships or other circumstances and want to order other things ahead of time, you can order your commencement items from the College Store via phone (toll-free 888-PSU-GIFT), fax (518) 561-5505, online or by mail: College Store, 101 Broad Street, Plattsburgh, NY 12901.

You got questions...We got answers.
