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 his/her 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.

Any student wishing to participate in the June commencement ceremony must have completed 135 units by the end of the Winter Quarter. Participation in the commencement ceremony does not constitute official graduation from the university.

Yearbook

Yearbook is a social media platform for UC San Diego graduating students. It is where you will create a profile, watch commencement ceremonies, interact with other graduates, and family and guests can leave comments on your page. You can also download a photo card with your picture, name, quote, and achievements, and a list of Roosevelt graduates as commemorative Commencement 2021 keepsakes. 

Select the yearbook option when you register for Commencement in order to participate in “Yearbook”. The deadline is May 19, 2021.
