Should inclement weather arise prior or during a commencement ceremony, the University President can cancel or expedite the ceremony.
Rain Prior to the Ceremony
If it is raining seriously BEFORE THE START of the ceremony with little hope of abating, the University President may cancel the ceremony. In the event of a ceremony cancellation, we will notify you via CSUN email. Within that correspondence will have information of how to obtain your diploma cover.
Rain During the Ceremony
If it begins to rain seriously DURING the ceremony, the University President may interrupt the proceedings by stepping to the microphone and conclude early. Information surrounding diploma cover distribution would be delivered at that time.
