CSUN Past Graduates ... your commencement ceremony is almost here... Hooray!
Due to an overwhelming interest to participate, and to allow for a maximum amount of guest tickets, we found it necessary to make adjustments to the commencement schedule and have added an additional ceremony to celebrate all past graduate. This means there are a total of two ceremonies celebrating our past graduates during this year's commencement season. They will both be taking place at the University Library Lawn on Friday, May 20th - one will take place at 8:00am and the next one will take place at 1:00pm. The ceremonies have been divided by College in the following manner:
Past Grads attending the 8am ceremony will be from the following:
- Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, & Communication
- David Nazarian College of Business & Economics
- College of Humanities
- College of Health & Human Development
Past Grads attending the 1pm Ceremony will be from the following:
- Michael D. Eisner College of Education
- College if Engineering & Computer Science
- College of Science & Mathematics
- College of Social & Behavioral Sciences
Since we initially explained that this ceremony would be taking place at 8am only, and given that you may have already made plans to celebrate at the original timeframe, we can try to place you back into the 8am ceremony if necessary. To request this change please connect with us via email at
explaining your situation and upon review we will make adjustments to your ceremony and provide you with the corrected tickets to claim in your ticketing account.
Your Commencement ceremony will take place on May 20, 2022 at 8:00 AM, or 1:00pm***
