2018 All-Campus Commencement FAQs

The 2018 All-Campus Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 9:00am, on RIMAC Field. Will be streamed to commencement.ucsd.edu

The All Campus Commencement will feature Rep. John Lewis. 

“Rep. John Lewis has dedicated his life to making our world a better place for everyone by protecting human rights and securing civil liberties. He stands up for what he believes in and he is not afraid to take risks. These are ideals we aim to convey to our graduates as they commence their careers and lives beyond the classroom.”
—Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla

Following the All Campus Commencement, the colleges and graduate & professional programs will host personalized graduation ceremonies, where students will walk across stage as their names are read.

Students will need a ticket to participate in both the All Campus Commencement ceremony and their college ceremony. 

Undergraduate students must meet the standard commencement participation requirement of having at least 135 units completed by the beginning of spring quarter. Make sure to check the Revelle's website for information on deadlines for filing your degree and diploma application and getting your name in the program.

Students will process in for the All Campus Commencement ceremony and are required to wear their caps and gowns at both ceremonies.

At all its commencement ceremonies, UC San Diego accommodates disabled individuals in these ways:

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.

Fun Fact

"And I’ll say the one single thing I can say
As you leap on your horses and enter the fray,
I just wish you good luck
And a hasta luego
from U.C. La Jolla….
….I mean San Diego.” 

~ Theodor (Dr. Seuss) Geisel, in his 1978 Commencement address for Revelle College Seniors
