The Commencement Office provides Cal Poly graduates and their guests with a memorable and meaningful graduation experience that symbolizes the culmination of their academic achievements.
The office aims to enhance and enrich the culmination of a student’s academic achievement through honored university tradition and festive celebration. It also aims to collaborate and build strong alliances with campus partners in this university-wide effort.
Commencement is a time of celebration, pride and reflection for students, families, friends, faculty and staff. As graduates embark on the next chapter of their lives, they are welcomed to the Cal Poly Alumni Association and encouraged to continue their engagement as “Mustangs Forever.”
