We continue to encourage students to get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is your time and to screen and test for COVID-19, wear a face covering, physically distance, wash your hands frequently and add CA Notify to your phone. Please consult the Return to Learn website for additional information on vaccines and testing.


Graduates, we look forward to honoring the resilience you’ve shown this last year and the incredible academic accomplishment you have achieved during your time at UC San Diego. As we all continue to navigate the impact of COVID-19, know we are exploring ways to ensure you fully experience the pomp and circumstance, joy and pride that mark one of the most memorable times in a student’s life.

UC San Diego is currently planning virtual commencement ceremonies in June 2021. We are also monitoring COVID-19 public-health guidelines for changes that would allow us to safely honor graduates’ desire for an in-person experience of some sort. Please check back at the beginning of April for more information regarding Commencement 2021 ceremonies.

Regalia is now available for purchase through the UC San Diego Bookstore.
