St. Francis College graduates

St. Francis College is pleased to announce Winter Commencement activities for January 21, 2020 at St. James Cathedral Basilica (250 Cathedral Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11201).

This SFC tradition begins at 3 p.m. with Baccalaureate Mass and the Commencement Ceremony at 4 p.m. We are thrilled that our keynote address will be delivered by Professor and Chair, Marina Gair Ph.D. of the Education Department. This year’s Winter Valedictorian is  Nermina Markisic, a Political Science major.

Since there are many moving parts associated with the ceremony, we would like to highlight the following points:

  • Faculty and administrators attending Mass will sit in their academic attire in the first few rows on the right side of the Church.
  • Faculty and administrators not attending Mass, but choose to participate in the Commencement Procession must be in the back of the Church in academic attire by 3:45 p.m.
  • Staff attending the Mass and/or the Ceremony must have a ticket.  Please follow the RSVP directions below so a ticket is delivered to your office. 

As the College continues to plan and implement our Green Initiative, we will not be sending hard copy Commencement invitations and response cards via inter-office mail. To RSVP-please contact:
