Commencement Guests

Welcome family, friends, and guests to the 2015 Commencement Ceremonies!

The 2015 Commencement Ceremonies will take place on campus of California State University San Marcos. Ceremonies will begin promptly at the designated times. There is ample guest seating so tickets are not required. Keep in mind that traffic will be heavy surrounding the campus. Please allow adequate time for travel and parking!

Family and friends will enter campus from Twin Oaks Valley Road to Craven Drive and asked to park in Lot B, C, X, Y & Z .  All guest seating will be in direct sunlight with no shade available however, the weather in May is unpredictable.  Please check the weather for Commencement weekend and dress appropriately. 

Ceremony times are expected to run approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.  If you have lunch or dinner reservations, allow at least 1.5 to 2 hours after each ceremony to give yourself time to meet your graduate, take photos, get back to your vehicles and exit from the parking lot.
