"Degree conferral date" – the date the College will note on your official transcript that you have been granted the degree for which you have completed all requirements.  The College confer degrees three times a year: on the last Saturday in May, August, and December.  Your degree will be conferred on the closest conferral date following the completion of all your degree requirements; for May, that date is May 30, 2020.   
Diploma mailing -- The College anticipates that diplomas will be mailed to graduates in August.
