Per Chancellor Wilcox's announcement on April 7, 2021, UC Riverside will be holding limited, in-person Commencement activities for the graduating classes of 2021 and 2020, consistent with public health guidance, assuming local SARS CoV-2 infection data do not worsen significantly between now and the end of Spring Quarter.

Recognitions and celebrations for Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. degree recipients, and Teacher Credential candidates will be held during the weekend of June 11 - 14, 2021. Remarks and greetings by university, Academic Senate, alumni, and student leadership will be delivered as a prerecorded program of approximately 30 minutes and released at the end of Spring Quarter. Students and their families may watch this at a convenient time and enjoy a tassel-turning or hooding moment with their loved ones at home.

From Saturday, June 12 through Monday, June 14, graduating students may sign up for limited in-person commencement activities. There will be no guests permitted inside or around either facility, and students will line up socially distanced and with face coverings, as required by campus and public health guidelines.

We understand what an important time this in the lives of our graduates and in order to prepare our students for this celebration, Grad Fair 2021 will be held virtually. Please note, regalia is not required for the online celebration in June, but is encouraged for those that will return to campus for the in-person commencement activities; please only purchase regalia if you wish to have it. Students will receive a discount on a number of commencement items starting Monday, April 26, 2021.
