CSU Channel Islands congratulates the Class of 2020 on your achievements!

Postoned Commencement Ceremony

The health and safety of our graduates, their families, and our campus community is paramount. Our decision on the postponed date for Commencement must consider and align with guidance from the CSU System as well as national, state, and local health public officials.  We hope to receive guidance soon and be able to announce a new date.

 We understand the sacrifices that the Class of 2020 has made during this time. We join with them in their disappointment in having to post-pone the in-person ceremony that they so deserve.  We are committed to delivering the celebration that they have earned and we look forward to watching them all walk across the stage to the cheers of their loved ones, friends, faculty, and all of us at CSUCI.

The Virtual Commencement ceremony at CSU Channel Islands is a candidate's ceremony and not a degree conferral ceremony. Participation in the ceremony does not guarantee degree certification. Candidates who are denied will receive notification by mail from the Records & Registration office. Denied candidates are required to reapply for graduation once all degree requirements are met.
