After graduating from sketch comedy to late night chatting, Jimmy Fallon's finally landed his Bachelor's Degree.

The funnyman accepted his B.A. in communications on Saturday, after 17 years in the pipeline, from Albany, N.Y.'s College of Saint Rose. He also served as keynote speaker.

"There's always going to be someone out there like that movie critic, who doesn't believe in you or who thinks your head is too big or you're not smart enough...those are the people you need to ignore, and those are the times you need to just keep doing what you love doing," Fallon said.

He celebrated the feat by returning to old stomping grounds Saturday Night Live, where he palled around with Justin Timberlake as singer Barry Gib.
