New this year, UCI has its own Commencement app! With information and schedules, it's available on both the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play by searching "UCI Commencement" or by using the QR code below at right.
Open your camera app and point it steady for 2-3 seconds at the QR code. You don't need to hit the shutter button; it should read the code automatically. If scanning is enabled, a notification will appear. If nothing happens, you may have to go to your settings and enable QR Code scanning.
Please be advised that all bags are subject to search at the entry doors prior to entering the Bren Events Center. Backpacks, large tote bags, large camera bags and large purses are discouraged. Please review the list of items allowed/not allowed in the Bren.
Each graduate will be photographed before arriving at the stage and again when they shake the hand of their dean.
A link to Commencement photograph proofs will be sent to participating graduates via e-mail.
During the school ceremonies, Commencement Flowers will have booths with flower and lei gifts for purchase. Order ahead, then to pick up your order, give your name at one of the Commencement Flowers booths at your ceremony. Grads can also pick up pre-ordered flowers inside the graduate check-in location.
In a show of compassion for fellow students, the class of 2019 has voted to direct their Senior Class Gift to the FRESH Basic Needs Hub. Their goal is to raise$25,000 to provide 20 meal plan sponsorships for UCI students who experience food insecurity and need help with meal plan expenses in order to concentrate on their studies. Celebrate and support the class of 2019 by contributing to the FRESH Basic Needs Hub in honor of your graduating student.
The Division of Career Pathways is kicking off the new academic year with the Fall Career Fair during Welcome Week on September 25. It's also moving to the Bren Events Center - which allows space for more employers. Your student can explore the growing list of employers throughout the summer and fine-tune their Handshake profile.
Several events will take place this summer on campus and online to prepare students for this important event. Stay tuned for more details...
