The Affinity Graduation Celebrations honor the accomplishments and experiences of CSUMB graduates from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Affinity Grads are free for graduates, their guests, and the campus community. There are eight CSUMB Affinity Graduation Celebrations for graduating students, they are: Asian, Pacific Islander (API) Grad; Black Grad; Chicanx/Latinx Grad; Native American Grad; Students with Disabilities Grad; Rainbow (LGBTQ+) Grad; Undoc-U (Undocumented) Grad; and Veteran Student Grad. The ceremony and stoles are free of cost for students and guests. To get involved or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Affinity Grads application deadline is April 5, 2019. This deadline will not be extended.
Graduating students must attain a ticket for themselves in addition to their guests. Graduating students must choose the "Graduating Student and Guests" ticket option.Additional Ticket Request Form
