Consistent with California Department of Public Health recommendations, we are promoting social distancing by canceling all events and gatherings on or off campus through May 31. Please continue to rely on online and other digital communication strategies to hold all meetings.

This decision covers all events and gatherings, including, but not limited to:

  • Banquets, luncheons, receptions, dinner galas
  • Conferences, workshops and meetings
  • Guided campus tours, public performances


The university is postponing the May 15, 16, and 17 graduation ceremonies until we can ensure the safety and security of our students and their families. We advise families not to make arrangements to come to the campus. We are actively looking at alternatives to celebrate our graduates in an appropriate manner.

Please note that commencement is NOT being cancelled. It is being postponed to a later date. Also, know that this decision will not affect the timing of degree completion. Degree conferral will be governed by the completion of the academic work for the relevant degree.

We understand that commencement is an important part of the Cal Poly Pomona experience and we want to honor our student’s significant milestone. While the formal pomp and circumstance will not take place in May, we will work to create an experience that honors the commitment and sacrifice made by you and your family. When we announce the new schedule and dates it will provide enough notice for graduates and guest to plan to attend the ceremonies. We ask for your patience and understanding as we continue to find solutions during these unprecedented times. 

Visit the ASI events page, to view which ASI events have been canceled or rescheduled. Also, the ASI FAQ page addresses topics such as travel, ASI operations and club accounts.
