Due to the emergence of COVID-19 early last year, CSM did not hold a 2020 commencement
ceremony but promised our 2019–2020 graduates one at a future date.
On Friday, May 28, 2021, CSM will follow through on that promise by premiering the 2020 Virtual Commencement ceremony on YouTube at 5:30 pm. That event will be followed by the 2021 Virtual Commencement at 7:00 pm. Both ceremonies will be available to watch any time after the premiere.
Regalia, diploma covers, and other commencement items can be ordered from the College of San Mateo Bookstore.
Students who lack units to be approved for graduation before the end of the spring semester may participate in the ceremony provided that the units required will be completed during the following summer term. See Incomplete Units for details.
The pandemic has been a monumental challenge but our students persevered and achieved their academic goals. While a virtual commencement is not what we originally envisioned when we postponed the 2020 event, we are excited to celebrate the past two years of our graduates’ successes.
