COVID Pre-Check and Safety

All students and guests must first process through a COVID pre-check area that will be set up at the south main steps to the Anderson complex. Students and their guests may stand together in the COVID pre-check area.

Caps & Gowns

Caps and gowns will be available for pickup from the MFE office in mid-November. Gowns and hoods will be collected immediately following the graduation ceremony but students may keep their cap and tassel as a souvenir of the day.


Due to space limitations we ask that graduates limit the number of guests to three. For those who are not able to attend, the event will be livestreamed and the link to the event will be sent to the students the week of graduation and posted on the UCLA Anderson commencement website.

Prior to entering the Anderson complex all students and guests must show either proof of vaccination or negative COVID test no older than 72 hours prior to the event. Regardless of vaccination status, everyone must wear masks at all times indoors. Wristbands will be issued to all guests which must be shown at the entrance to Korn Convocation Hall and to Briskin Plaza for the reception afterwards so don’t tear them off.


A ceremonial diploma holder will be presented to each graduate at the commencement ceremony. Official University of California, Los Angeles, diplomas will be available to be mailed or picked up in March 2022. Please remember to keep your contact information updated in both the Anderson Directory and MyUCLA. The UCLA Registrar’s Office will email you when your diploma is ready. For information regarding the diploma process please click here.


Your class photograph will be taken at UCLA Anderson School promptly at 1:30 p.m. so we ask that you arrive early. Please meet in the Marion Anderson Courtyard by 1:30 p.m. at the top of the west staircase [adjacent to the Anderson Café]. It is important that everyone be on time and dressed for the photos so as not to delay commencement. Please instruct your guests to go directly to the graduation ceremony site (Korn Convocation Hall). A professional photographer will be available beforehand and during the reception afterwards for informal family and group photos.
