Welcome graduates, faculty, family & friends. Each year at the Commencement ceremony we recognize outstanding student leaders, often award distinguished public figures of high achievement with honorary degrees and feature a keynote Commencement speaker. Students' degrees will be conferred by the President at this ceremony. The Commencement
event is an important part of graduation, and we invite you
to attend this special celebration.
Diploma & Hooding Ceremonies
Each of the schools and the College on the Stockton campus, except for the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, conducts its own separate Diploma and Hooding Ceremony to cap off a highly personalized educational experience at Pacific. Each ceremony is small in size to recognize you individually as you cross the platform to receive your diploma and congratulations from your Dean.
