Commencement 2021 Announcement
Dear Class of 2021 and Class of 2020:
The Cal State LA community is excited to celebrate your outstanding achievement in person! This email includes important information about your in-person Commencement on the campus of Cal State LA in July with guests.
These are the details:
Cal State LA’s in-person Commencement will take place on Wednesday, July 21, through Friday, July 23, and Monday, July 26, through Thursday, July 29. The ceremonies will be college-based.
Each graduate will be allotted two guest tickets. We will also livestream the ceremony so all of your family and friends will be able to enjoy the celebration of your achievement.
The ceremonies will take place at Cal State LA’s baseball stadium, Reeder Field. An outdoor venue on our campus will allow the greatest opportunity to celebrate, while taking the necessary measures to keep everyone safe. We are modifying the baseball field for this special event. Additional seating and shade structures will be added to the field in anticipation of the weather.
During the ceremony, your name will be called and you will have the opportunity to walk across the stage and have your photo taken. Our ceremonies will also include a graduation address, music, and the turning of the tassels. Hooding will not take place at these ceremonies.
Caps, gowns and other regalia are highly recommended, but not required. The University Bookstore will have regalia available for purchase starting on Monday, June 21. Please follow the bookstore’s Instagram page @calstatelabookstore for updates and store hours.
Congratulations again on earning your degree! We look forward to celebrating you.
