*The University of San Diego continues to monitor county and state regulations. The current plan is to host in-person ceremonies, rain or shine, on the field of Torero Stadium for both the Class of 2021 and Class of 2020. Attendance will be very limited. Due to space restrictions and health and safety guidelines, only two guest invitations may be extended per graduate. Please continue to monitor this website for the most current details, protocols and safety measures regarding Commencement 2021. We will update the site regularly as state and local regulations continue to evolve.
