Every year we eagerly await assembling for this time-honored tradition. However, this unprecedented moment has prompted necessary adaptation. While some believe the COVID-19 pandemic will subside in a matter of months, given the rapid and evolving nature of the virus, the risk is too great to gather in numbers so soon.

In coordination with state and local agencies, the Office of the Chancellor has decided to postpone this year’s in-person undergraduate commencement ceremony at this time. Further details will be forthcoming as the situation evolves.

Even though the official ceremony may be postponed, you are about to become a UC Davis graduate, and nothing can take that away from you. In the meantime, until we can gather together in person, we hope you will join us for an enthusiastic online celebration recognizing the tremendous accomplishments of the UC Davis Class of 2020.
