California Institute of the Arts invites you to the 2021 Virtual Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 14, 2021, at 6 pm PDT.

On May 14, 2021, more than 300 graduates will celebrate the conclusion of their studies at CalArts and be conferred their degrees. However, due to the social restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, CalArts and the Office of Student Experience have decided to produce a virtual, live-streamed ceremony so that students, alumni, family, and friends can celebrate our graduates from the safety and comfort of home.

The May 14 virtual event will give every graduate the opportunity to officially mark this important milestone, hear words of encouragement from their school leaders and alumni guests, and enjoy a sense of finality to their hard work and dedication to their studies. While we understand this is not ideal for our graduating class of 2021, the entire CalArts community has gone to great lengths to make this virtual event special for our graduates.
