Commencement

COVID-19/Coronavirus Update

We are pleased to announce that the in-person 2020 Commencement ceremony scheduled for May 11 has been postponed and rescheduled to Sunday, Aug. 16, at the Shrine Auditorium (of course barring any further Centers for Disease Control or Los Angeles County restrictions). The graduate ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. and the undergraduate ceremony will be at 2:30 p.m. While we know that this date might not work for everyone, we hope that you will be able to return so that we can celebrate with you and your families.

As in past years, the ceremony will also be available via livestream, for those unable to attend in person.

Students who are eligible for the Aug. 16 ceremony are those who graduated in Summer 2019, Fall 2019 and Spring 2020. All students who have been cleared through the Registrar’s Office to graduate by May 8, 2020, will be eligible to participate.
