Fall Commencement is a combined graduation ceremony for the four undergraduate colleges:

•College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
•College of Biological Sciences
•College of Engineering
•College of Letters and Science (Click here for the list of majors.)

Spring Commencement, on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at 9 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. for the College of Letters & Science is held as three (3) separate ceremonies in one day.


Any student who received a degree in March 2014 or June 2014, and who has not already participated in the Spring 2014 commencement ceremony, is eligible and welcome to participate in the Fall Commencement.

Any student who expects to receive a degree in September 2014  or December 2014, and has completed the 150 units required, is also welcome to participate in the ceremony.

While students expecting to graduate in September 2015 or December 2015 may participate in the Spring 2015 commencement if the minimum unit requirement of 160 has already been met, you are encouraged to participate in the Fall 2015 commencement, closer to the completion of your studies. Typically a smaller ceremony, the fall commencement allows for students to invite more guests.

For undergraduates to officially graduate, you must file a graduation application online for the term in which you will graduate during the appropriate filing periods.
