Regional Ceremony Schedule

All College (Time TBD)

As a way to help more families and friends celebrate with their graduate, Cal Poly Humboldt will be hosting a Spring 2024 Regional Commencement ceremony in addition to the on-campus ceremonies. Graduates may choose to register and participate in any of the ceremonies—on-campus and/or the regional ceremony. Separate registrations will be required. All majors are welcome to participate.

The Spring 2024 Regional Commencement ceremony time has yet to be determined and will be based on student registration and participation in each major and college affiliation. Once student registration closes on April 3, we will be able to better determine the start time and make the announcement. Please plan for an afternoon ceremony.


A black cap and a black gown are required to participate in a Commencement ceremony. Caps, gowns, tassels, hoods, and more are available to purchase online through Herff Jones through March 22 at 8:59 p.m. PST.

Missed the online deadline? Regalia packages and individual items will be available for purchase directly at The Campus Store on the Arcata Plaza after March 22. The Campus Center for Appropriate Technology (CCAT) is also offering cap and gown rentals starting April 19. Please contact them for more details at ccat@humboldt.edu. If you have any questions regarding regalia orders, please contact The Campus Store at (707) 826-3741.
