Department Graduations

Getting Ready

1

Review Your Expected Graduation Term on Cal Central

Your expected graduation term (or EGT for spring, summer, or winter) is automatically generated and posted to the ”My Academics” page of Cal Central underneath your photo. If you are not completing all of your degree requirements by the end of your EGT, you will need to contact your college/school’s advising office.

Get Your Cap, Gown, and More

Since the campuswide and department ceremonies will be virtual, you can watch them in graduation regalia or your PJs. Get formal — or get comfy! If you go all out, you may purchase your cap and gown, frame, and other graduation items through the Cal Student Store, which will ship directly to your home. UC Berkeley does not provide cords; check with your department and student groups to see if they provide them.
