Note: Participation in this or any commencement ceremony does not guarantee that you will officially graduate and receive your Bachelor’s degree.

Please note that participating in the commencement ceremony or “walking” is not the same as graduating (the official awarding of your B.A. degree). To graduate, your Expected Graduation Term (EGT) as listed on your Cal Central dashboard will need to be Fall 2018, Spring 2019, Summer 2019, or Fall 2019, AND you will need to have completed all graduation requirements (university, college, campus, and major). Please check your Academic Progress Report (APR) on your Cal Central Dashboard and meet with your major advisor to be sure that you will have completed ALL requirements by the time you graduate. Note that you may participate in the ceremony on May 22nd, yet not officially graduate till the end of the summer or fall semesters of 2019.
