Dear Campus Community:

The health and well-being of our students and employees remains our highest priority during these unprecedented circumstances. As such, it is extremely important to follow the mass gathering guidelines (PDF, 242KB) established by the California Department of Public Health, as well as direction by the CSU Chancellor’s Office.

Additionally, today Ventura County Public Health announced five new presumptive positive cases of COVID-19. These cases have an unidentified source of exposure and at this time are considered community transmission cases.

As a result, we have made the incredibly difficult decision along with the other CSU campuses, to postpone the Commencement ceremony to another date later this calendar year.

Graduation is the culmination of so many inspiring educational journeys. We know that our students have worked hard and have overcome significant obstacles to be able to reach the point of graduation at CSUCI. We also understand the sacrifices that so many of their loved ones, friends, and family members have made to enable their student to succeed.

As soon as we are able to announce a new date for Commencement, we will make sure to share with the class of 2020 and our campus community. We look forward to a Commencement celebration in the future!

CSUCI Commencement Team
