Welcome to the official website for Commencement at California State University, Los Angeles.
The 2018 Commencement ceremonies celebrate the 70th graduating class of Cal State LA, and are scheduled for May 2018. Additional information such as dates, times, location, and ticketing information will be available in late October or early November. We invite our graduates, families, and friends to join us next year as the University recognizes and honors the academic achievement of the Class of 2018.
