Information for Faculty

Graduate Studies, together with the Graduate Council and the Graduate Student Association, will hold the Graduate Studies commencement ceremony on Thursday, June 11, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. in the ARC Pavilion to honor the graduate degree recipients. 

You are cordially invited to attend the Graduate Studies commencement. It means a great deal to graduate students to have faculty members attend their commencement.


Robes, caps, tassels, and UC doctoral hoods are available for use free of charge and may be ordered online by your department from Supply Chain Management. Delivery of purchase orders takes 8-10 weeks. Graduate Studies is not responsible for acquiring, bringing or returning commencement apparel.

Non-Presenting Faculty

If you plan to attend the ceremony as an interested faculty member, please mark the box ‘Interested Faculty’ on our registration page.  Please also contact your department to arrange for cap and gown rental as soon as possible. Arrangements can be made for late cap and gown rental, however size options may be limited.  The department staff and faculty are responsible for acquiring, bringing or returning commencement apparel. Regrettably Graduate Studies can not assist you with this task.
