This year, the Graduate Division Commencement ceremony will be held on Friday, June ​12th at 1 p.m. on the Commencement Green.

Students who have completed or will complete a graduate degree or credential between the period of Summer 2019 and Fall 2020 are invited to participate. Registration will take place via the Graduate Division's website, and registration will open mid-February 2020.

Tickets are not required for the Graduate Division Commencement Ceremony. Seating is plentiful. 

Thesis/Dissertation Filing Deadline

The spring filing deadline ​is Tuesday, June 1​6th. This means that all candidates for a spring degree must file their theses/dissertations and/or have their master’s comprehensive exams/projects completed by June 1​6th. Note that the Graduate Division will be closed for much of Friday, June 1​6th, so that the staff can assist at the ceremony. However, we will be available for students on the 1​5th and 1​6th.

Additional information on Commencement and a registration link will be posted later in the quarter. If you have questions about the ceremony, please contact our UCSB Graduate Division Academic Services team.
