For general questions regarding UC San Diego's virtual commencement ceremonies, visit commencement.ucsd.edu or email commencement@ucsd.edu

Graduation Information

Official graduation and participating in the Commencement Ceremony are two seperate things. Make sure to review all important graduation information here.

  • Graduation is the term used to describe when a student has completed all requirements and his/her degree has been officially posted to the academic record. Students must complete a Degree and Diploma Application (DDA) to file for graduation. 
  • Commencement is the annual ceremony in which eligible students participate. Participation in the commencement ceremony does not constitute official graduation from the University.

Any student wishing to participate in the June commencement ceremony must have completed 135 units by the end of Winter Quarter. Participation in the commencement ceremony does not constitute official graduation from the university.

MarStole Tradition

Many students have also given their "MarStoles” to special supporters whom they felt had been key contributors in the achievement of college graduation. This stole will be worn over your regalia to showcase your pride in Marshall College.

Stoles are no longer available for sale as of 5/22/20. Please check back on this page and on social media to receive announcements for when we will be selling MarStoles again. If you have questions, please email tmcstudentaffairs@ucsd.edu
