If You Didn't Make It To GRADFEST…

We're sorry that you missed out. Academic regalia (graduation caps and gowns) will be available for on-hand purchases after May 5th, or online.  Feel free to visit the Matador Bookstore website and locate information on graduation merchandise and apparel including sashes, frames, and much more.  Those wishing to order their regalia online you’ll navigate to the Herff Jones (an affiliate and partner of the Matador Bookstore) by clicking here: 

You can also review the Contacts section of the commencement website (under the Resources tab) for a list of other vendors and services that were at GradFest and may appeal to other needs.


Reserve Your Guest Tickets

An email was sent to all eligible graduating students through their CSUN email account with specific instructions on how to access the account and print up to 7 guest tickets. If you have yet to receive this email, refer to the Ticketing Information page on the commencement website to troubleshoot.

Commencement Handbook

Be sure to reference the Official Commencement Handbook that was distributed during GradFest. This handbook details much of the information that ceremony participants, families, and friends wish to know as they anticipate their graduation day.

Still Have Questions?

The website's FAQ section can possibly answer some of the questions that are still on your mind like:

  • What happens if I am a double major?

  • What time should I arrive?

  • What’s the difference between Graduating with University Honors, and attending the Honors Convocation?

Watch Commencements Live – Online!
