After two years of remote instruction and hybrid learning, CSUN is honored and delighted to celebrate all graduating classes from 2019-2022 at this year’s Commencement ceremonies in May.

To get you ready for the big event, GradFest will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 8-10 at the CSUN Campus Store and will serve as a one-stop resource for graduation information. Grads will be able to order caps and gowns, sashes and class rings, and learn more about the various cultural graduation celebrations on campus. Caps and gowns will be available for grads to pose for graduation portraits inside the Campus Store. In addition, the CSUN Alumni Association will have representatives at an information tent outside the Campus Store. All graduates become members of the CSUN Alumni Association, ensuring a lifetime connection for Matadors to their alma mater.

 Admission to GradFest is free, but registration is required. Be sure to watch your CSUN email for important information related to GradFest and to RSVP via Eventbrite.

To enter the venue, you must have your registration confirmation email on your phone or mobile device and already have finished your daily COVID Self-Screening. COVID Self-Screening information can be found on the Matadors Forward webpage.
