Warren College Commencement

2019 Commencement Ceremony

Warren College's Commencement Ceremony will be held on June 15, 2019 at 1:30pm on RIMAC Field.

Applying for Graduation

Graduation is when a student has completed all requirements and their degree has been officially posted to their academic record. Students must file a Degree and Diploma Application (DDA) to initiate this process.

Students must file a Degree and Diploma Application (DDA) by May 1 at http://degree.ucsd.edu if you would like your name to be listed in the commencement program.

Commencement is the annual ceremony in which any student with senior standing (135 units) may choose to participate. Participation does not constitute official graduation from the University.

All Campus Commencement

UC San Diego is reviving a time-honored tradition to celebrate and unify all graduates together.  A campuswide commencement featuring an internationally-renowned speaker will be held in tandem with the undergraduate and graduate school ceremonies. We invite all graduates, families and friends to attend both ceremonies to fully experience the pomp and circumstance, and joy and pride, that marks one of the most memorable times in a student’s life. This two-part celebration will include the 90-minute All Campus Commencement during which Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla will officially confer degrees by academic division upon graduates gathered as one student body on RIMAC Field. In addition, the six undergraduate colleges, Graduate Division and professional schools will host personalized Graduation Ceremonies for their students, where graduates will be recognized by name as they walk across the stage. We can’t wait to celebrate with you! Learn more at commencement.ucsd.edu.
