Saturday, June 12, 2021, 8:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. (PDT)
Working with campus Special Events, UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has secured a designated, engineering-only, four-hour time slot on Saturday, June 12 where our graduates can come together for an in-person celebration at Drake Stadium. This is not a degree conferral or commencement, and the in-person recognition is separate from the school’s virtual commencement ceremony to be held on Sunday, June 13.
Students can reserve a spot, capacity permitting, from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and can be accompanied by up to two guests for a procession around the stadium. Graduates will have their names read aloud, proceed across the stage by themselves and be photographed. They will rejoin their guests and be photographed off stage before exiting Drake Stadium. There will not be any seating in the stadium. If students cannot make it within the time frame or if the capacity has been reached, they can still sign up for a spot from any other available time slots on June 10-15 that are open to all majors. This will offer the same experience for a procession alongside graduates from all units. All students and guests participating in the event will need to be either fully vaccinated or show a negative COVID test.
Additional details will be sent to all eligible degree candidates soon. Questions can be directed to our Message Center. For Students – MyUCLA Message Center. For the general public, family and guests – Message Center
