  • Commencement Information

    We are saddened to share that the commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 15-16 will be postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We know how important commencement is and we are committed to rescheduling to a date later this year when it is appropriate and safe to do so. In addition, we will be 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. The commencement website has been recently updated with current information. Updates will be posted on the commencement website along with the CSUSM Cougar Central Instagram page (@csusmcougarcentral) once received. Current graduates will also be informed via their CSUSM email account once a commencement date has been determined.

    You may read the official announcement online.
