We want to ensure your commencement ceremony is a great experience and memory for both you and your guests. For this reason we would like to recommend that you inform your guests that when leaving campus they avoid accessing the 405 Freeway from 7th. Alternative routes are both Palo Verde Avenue and Bellflower Boulevard, from which both the 405 North and South can be accessed.

*Schedule is subject to change and will be confirmed by the start of the Spring 2015 semester. Please contact the College Dean's office for more information.

**Because of the large number of graduates at the largest ceremonies HHS, LA, Arts, and Business will require tickets for each guest. Each student will receive 8 tickets so that all attendees have a pleasant experience. Tickets will be available for graduates to pick up from the Bookstore during cap and gown distribution. Every person attending the ceremony will need a ticket: including children. If you plan on bringing small children it is recommended that you view the ceremony in the live-streaming room which will not require tickets

For ceremonies on Tuesday, May 19, we ask that each student limit the number of guests to 8 or under so that all attendees have a pleasant experience.

All ceremonies are held outdoors in the Central Quad.
