Virtual Spring Commencement 2021

Save the date for Cal Poly’s Virtual Spring Commencement 2021 celebration on Saturday, June 12, featuring six academic college ceremonies. These virtual ceremonies will feature messages from campus leaders and alumni, memories from your time at Cal Poly, the conferral of degrees and graduate name reading.

Please note that if public health conditions allow, a special in-person event will be held for graduates only (no guests or spectators allowed on campus) on June 12-13. Decisions about holding this event will be made in May and if it is held, it will be live-streamed for families and supporters to view from their locations outside of San Luis Obispo. All academic college, department, cultural, club and organization celebrations will remain virtual.
