Get Registered, Listed, and Ticketed for Commencement

Registering for your complimentary grad ticket also signs you up to walk in the campuswide commencement celebration; check our FAQ for more information about tickets. If you miss the November 20 program deadline, you are still welcome to walk, but your name will not be included in the printed program.


Get Your Cap, Gown, and More

Purchase your academic regalia, announcements, and other graduation items at the Cal Student StoreOrder online and pick your items up at the store, or visit the store in person. Berkeley does not provide cords; check with your department and student groups to see if they provide them.
