General Commencement Information

Please go to to find details on all commencement ceremonies, registration and yearbook, parking and transportation. 

Graduation vs Commencement

Official graduation and participating in the Commencement Ceremony are two separate things:

  • Graduation is the term used to describe when a student has completed all requirements and their degree has been officially posted to the academic record. Students must complete a Degree and Diploma Application (DDA) to file for graduation. 
  • Commencement is the annual ceremony in which eligible students participate. Participation in the commencement ceremony does not constitute official graduation from the University.

Am I eligible for Commencement?

Registration for college commencements is open to eligible undergraduate students with 135 units by the end of Winter Quarter who are completing their degree by the Fall Quarter.

If you have less than 135 units completed by the end of Winter Quarter but will be graduating by the Fall and wish to register for the commencement ceremony, please contact ERC Academic Advising via to verify your graduation plans.

Please note:

  • Exceptions are not guaranteed to be approved.
  • Participation in the commencement ceremony does not constitute official graduation from the university.

Can I modify or change my Commencement ticket after I have registered?

Congratulations to those of you who are preparing to graduate in June. Please click HERE for Graduation FAQs.  If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the ERC Academic Advising Office through the Virtual Advising Center (VAC) or by calling (858) 534-9864.

I want to change my legal/official name (first/middle/last). What do I do?

You need to contact the Office of the Registrar Academic Records immediately to request an official name change. Request for Change or Correction of Name form and more information can be found HERE

Official name changes must be requested and completed by Academic Records registration tickets. Academic Records is able to update a student's name change within 7 business days after receiving your paperwork. 

Once the official name is updated, it immediately refreshes the commencement registration system. Note that official name change is for last names. A student cannot change their last name with the Social Identities Tool.

When will I receive my diploma?

  • You will receive your UC San Diego diploma upon successful completion of university and degree requirements as long as a Degree and Diploma Application (DDA) was properly submitted for your graduating term.
  • Diplomas will be mailed to the permanent mailing address listed on record in TritonLink approximately 3-6 months after the student’s graduating term. Diplomas will bear the student’s official name exactly as stated on their UC San Diego academic record.
  • Multiple degrees are listed on one diploma. Minors are not listed on diplomas.
  • If a diploma is not received by the end of the time allowed, contact Academic Records at (858) 534-3144.
