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). Current graduates will also be informed via their CSUSM Email Account once a Commencement date has been determined.
You may read the official announcement on the University response status and resources website: www.csusm.edu/incident .
Commencement Ceremony dates and schedule will be posted once this has been determined. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
LOCATION: All ceremonies will be held at the California State University San Marcos Mangrum Track & Field.
GRAD CHECK-IN: All graduates will check-in 1 HOUR before their ceremony start time at the Softball Field.
We do not anticipate weather issues at this time, but the chance for inclement weather is always a possibility. The University will have measures in place to monitor weather conditions and make informed decisions concerning weather safety. In the likelihood of rain, the event will continue as planned. More extreme weather conditions will be monitored and addressed as required.
