Commencement Coussoulis Arena

Cal State San Bernardino will celebrate its 13th December graduation on Saturday, Dec. 7, with two commencement ceremonies.

Of the more than 1,500 students eligible to graduate in December, more than 700 are expected to participate in the ceremonies, which will be held at the university’s 3,500-seat Coussoulis Arena.

The first ceremony will be at 8:45 a.m. for CSUSB’s colleges of Business and Public Administration and Social and Behavioral Sciences. The second ceremony will be at 12:45 p.m. for the colleges of Arts and Letters, Education and Natural Sciences. Parking for the ceremonies is free. Overflow seating will be available in the Health and Physical Education Building, room 124, where guests can watch the ceremonies live via television.

This year the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences has the largest number of students registered to participate in the fall ceremony with 231, followed by the College of Business and Public Administration with 179, the College of Natural Sciences with 150, the College of Arts and Letters with 134, and the College of Education with 17.

The December commencement is especially popular with international and out-of-state students who have completed their studies and are likely unable to return for the traditional June graduation, which usually averages about 3,000 graduating students.

The commencement ceremonies will be webcast live at the CSUSB Academic Computing and Media Live WebCast page.
