Commencement or Graduation?

Commencement and Graduation are two separate events. Commencement is a ceremony, a celebration for you and your family of the completion (or near completion) of your college years. Participating in Commencement does not mean that you have graduated. Graduation is the process by which you receive a degree from Berkeley. See Diplomas and Graduation for more information.

All CNR students who graduated or will graduate in the following semesters are invited to participate:

  • Summer 2018
  • Fall 2018
  • Spring 2019
  • Summer 2019
  • Fall 2019

The commencement ceremony is about two hours long.
