Frequently Asked Questions
Is this the actual graduation?
No, the Chicano/Latino Senior Ceremony is an opportunity for the community to celebrate your accomplishments and an occasion for you to show appreciation for those who have been instrumental in those accomplishments. The official University-wide Commencement will be held the Saturday after the Chicano/Latino Senior Ceremony. It will be at the Commencement that you will receive your diploma from the University President. Please contact the University's Commencement Office for details on the University's graduation activities.
