The Class of 2024 Commencement Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 10th, 2024 at 9am in the Hearst Greek Theatre.
Each graduating student will be able to pick up a maximum of eight commencement tickets in the weeks preceding the ceremony. Graduates themselves do not need a ticket, but everyone else attending graduation regardless of age needs a ticket. If more than 8 tickets are needed, any remaining tickets will be made available to graduating students on a first-come, first-served basis starting Monday, May 6th.
More details for the upcoming ceremony will be posted here as the date approaches.

A: Your Cal1Cards will give you access to the Law Building through the end of July so that you can study at the Law Building and use your locker until then. Please note that since you will no longer be enrolled students, main campus will not issue you a new Cal1Card if you lost it after you graduate. If you are leaving town before the end of July, please be sure to clean out your locker before you do so.
