Submit a Dear Mustang Grad Letter

Showcase how Cal Poly Proud you are of your spring 2021 graduate by writing a Dear Mustang Grad letter!

The Dear Mustang Grad campaign offers a unique way for you to congratulate graduates, highlight their accomplishments, give thanks, share memories, and offer words of wisdom. Through these letters, we hope to surprise the Class of 2021 with personal notes from the people who supported them throughout their Cal Poly journey. Once submitted, the Commencement Office will begin preparations to deliver letters to graduates on your behalf.

The deadline to submit Dear Mustang Grad letters is May 14.
