Commencement has been Postponed

We are saddened to share that the 2020 Cal State San Marcos commencement ceremony scheduled for May 15-16 will be postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.   

 This very difficult decision was made with the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and guests at the forefront, and in consultation with public health experts and leadership from our 23-campus California State University system. 

We know how important Commencement is and we are committed to moving this important milestone to a date later this year when it is appropriate and safe to do so. It’s not a question of whether, but when. In addition, we are committed to consulting with ASI student leaders as we move forward with any plans.

We will share more information as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding as we continue to find solutions during these unprecedented times. 

Updates regarding Commencement will be posted on this website along with our Instagram page (@csusmcougarcentral).
