Spring 2020 - Spring 2021 Commencement Celebration

Dear 2020 Graduate OR Prospective 2021 Graduate:


While specific details are still in development, we are working to create a wonderful drive through Commencement experience on June 12, 2021 for the classes of 2020 and 2021. While it won't be the traditional event of walking across a stage to receive your diploma or certificate, we are confident it will be just as memorable.

In order for you to participate in this very special event you must register in advance using the form below. For safety and logistical reasons, we will not be able to accommodate anyone who has not pre-registered. The deadline to register to participate in the Commencement Event is May 24, 2021


 If you are interested in purchasing your keepsake graduation cap and gown you can do so using this link.


Participation in this year’s Commencement will be according to your major division. For example, if you are a Sociology major you will participate with the Social & Behavioral Sciences Division. Each division will be assigned a specific time to attend.

As we get closer to the Commencement date, we will be sending more detailed information for your participation in the event.

Please be aware that in order to be eligible to participate in Commencement you must petition to graduate by May 22, 2021.

See https://pasadena.edu/academics/support/counseling/graduation/apply-for-graduation.php for more information about graduation requirements.

We are excited to celebrate your achievement and look forward to an exciting Commencement experience.
