Before a student graduates, he or she must have major and College approval and the degree must be posted by the Registrar’s Office (DDA).

All seats are available on a first come-first served basis. UCSD does not provide rental wheelchairs. We recommend students contact a local hospital supply company if a rental is required.

It is STRONGLY suggested parties needing this seating arrive at least 2 hours prior to the ceremony, which is when guests begin arriving.

    • ADA carts assigned for those with wheelchair needs and walking impairments. For those who cannot walk the distance from the street to the mid-field (200 yards on grass), the ADA cart can drop off your guests near the stage area.  Alert the ADA cart driver of the walking impairment. The guest must walk from the drop-off point to the guest-seating area. Shuttle wait is between 1 and 15 minutes. We advise wearing flat shoes as RIMAC Field is a grassy field.
