Q: What’s the difference between “graduating” and “walking through commencement ceremonies”?

A: Students can graduate (that is, have completed all requirements for their degree and have stopped taking classes) during any quarter of the year. Then, several months after they have declared their degree expected term (through MyUCLA), they will be issued a diploma from UCLA. Commencement ceremonies, however, occur only once per year and you are invited to walk through these ceremonies whether or not you are actually graduating in Spring Quarter. This is the time for you to be publicly recognized by the university and your friends and family for your scholastic achievements. Participating in any commencement activities does NOT guarantee that you will actually earn a degree. You should consult a UCLA college and or departmental counselor for detailed information on satisfying degree requirements.

Q: Who may participate in the celebration?

A: MIMG majors who graduated in Fall 2023 and Winter 2024, and degree candidates for Spring and Summer 2024 may participate.

Q: Do I need tickets to bring guests to the celebration?

A: Each graduate will be allowed 4 complimentary guest tickets. You will need to indicate your participation and reserve your complimentary tickets on the MyUCLA ticketing system. No additional guest tickets will be provided.

All tickets for the MIMG Commencement Ceremony will be virtual tickets. You will receive email messages from tickets@cto.ucla.edu that contain links for you to receive your tickets. You will receive one message per ceremony for each of your graduate tickets and one message per ceremony for your guest tickets. Be sure you check the email account you have in MyUCLA, and check that email account’s spam folder for your ticket messages.

Q: Will provisions be made for my physical disabilities or those of my guests?

A: If you have a disability that will limit your ability to participate in the commencement ceremony, please contact saralee@mednet.ucla.edu. If you have guests with disabilities, call the Office for Students with Disabilities at (310) 825-1501 (voice), or (310) 206-6083 (TDD), ASAP to receive information about parking and other assistance at the Commencement. Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Guests with wheelchairs, disabilities or strollers are encouraged to arrive early.

Q: How do I purchase my cap and gown?

A: Graduation Etc. will begin taking orders for caps & gowns, announcements, diploma plaques and frames, Alumni Association memberships, and graduation gifts. Visit them online at the UCLA store

Q: Where can I get information about parking for graduation?

A: Current UCLA permit holders may park at their assigned spot during commencement without additional costs. You can pre-purchase parking passes for your guests. The UCLA Central Ticket Office will sell Pre-paid Commencement Parking Permits beginning in May ($14 per permit). The UCLA Central Ticket Office is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday.
