Graduation means that you have completed all of your degree requirements and have been awarded the degree – this process should not be confused with attending the Commencement Ceremonies. Formal Commencement Ceremonies occur once a year at the end of the Spring Semester.

Commencement at Cal State LA is one of the most celebrated events of the year. Cal State LA is celebrating the outstanding achievements of the Class of 2023* from May 22 – 26, 2023, in the Commencement Pavilion, a festive shaded structure that will be built in the event space on the north side of campus in Lot 5.

Please visit the Commencement website regularly since it contains valuable information for graduates and guests. Please scroll through each section and read the information as details are posted as soon as they are confirmed. The website has the full schedule, registration and ticketing information, and regalia details.

* The Class of 2023 includes the graduating candidates for fall 2022, winter 2023, spring 2023, and summer 2023.
