Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, formal ceremonies were not held in May 2020. 

All January, May, and August 2020 graduates are invited to attend Cal U's 191st Commencement Celebration.

Please note: The academic calendar has changed for the Fall 2020 semester, and plans are under way to adjust our Winter 2020 Commencement date accordingly. Please watch for an announcement once plans have been finalized.

REMINDER: All Prospective Graduates

Graduation is not automatic; students must apply the semester they are intending to graduate. Graduation information and details will be sent ONLY to students who have applied by the posted deadline. Although the date for ceremonies may have changed, students should apply for graduation as usual.
