Check In / Traffic Flow

Please review these arrival procedures:
  • To manage the flow of traffic, your car should enter the graduation line at what is traditionally the back exit to campus; please follow the signage below and enter via the City College Parking Lot.
  • Because of the location of diploma conferrals, please arrive from Ocean Avenue, travel north on Frida Kahlo Way, and make a left into the City College Lot. You will be guided to enter Riordan's back parking lot. This will help greatly with the flow of traffic.
  • Each car will be directed to exit Riordan's lot and go around the block to Frida Kahlo Way where the diplomas will be given out on the steps of Riordan. The student will be directed when to exit his car.
  • Car decorations are encouraged!

If you are unable to attend the graduation ceremony on Saturday due to illness or other reasons, please email Ms. Maria Bastianon,, to arrange to receive your diploma.

We again thank you for your patience, and look forward to celebrating this milestone with you on June 27.
