Last updated June 6, 2020 10:15 a.m.


You Did it! Let's Celebrate!

Although current circumstances prevent us from holding the traditional in-person Commencement Ceremony this spring, nothing can take your achievement away. Let’s make this occasion count! To help share your excitement with family and friends, we’ve planned an online celebration.

The Virtual Commencement Ceremony premiered on June 6, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.

How to View the Ceremony

  • You may view the Virtual Commencement by accessing the above link with your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone. You do not need a download, user ID or a password to view and participate. We recommend watching over a steady internet connection to fully participate in the live components. 

  • Find a comfy spot and don't forget some snacks! The 110-minutes long commencement is packed with exciting programs, and photos, videos, and messages from the graduates. Like a traditional commencement, you cannot pause, forward, or rewind, so make sure you don't miss a moment (but if you do, the recording will be posted shortly after the event).  

  • Participate in the live chat. Cheer on fellow graduates and give a shout-out to your favorite professor or staff. 

  • Tune in together with your family and friends. Host an online toast party using Zoom or other platforms after the ceremony to commemorate the event and take an online group photo #COASTGRAD.
