We look forward to celebrating Caltech's Class of 2021 at the virtual degree conferral and graduation ceremony on Friday, June 11, 2021. The virtual event will broadcast at 10 a.m. Pacific on commencement.caltech.edu/watch. After the initial broadcast, the video will remain available on that page for future viewing.

Caltech's 127th Commencement ceremony will include remarks from President Rosenbaum and Board Chair David Lee, special remarks from notable Caltech alumni and friends of Caltech, and the conferral of undergraduate and graduate degrees. During the degree conferral, individual student names will be read by the deans and division chairs, just as they would at a typical in-person ceremony. In addition, the virtual nature of this event provides us the opportunity to create a personalized slide for each graduate to accompany the reading of names. Graduating students should visit the Get Ready page to learn how to prepare for commencement.

In addition to the virtual event, you and your friends and families will have opportunities to celebrate together across distances. Visit the Participate page to learn more.
