Saddleback College Football Stadium

Join us for the 2022 Commencement Ceremony! The Ceremony is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 9am at the Saddleback College Football Stadium. We are excited to welcome everyone back to campus and also host the ceremony for the first time in our new Football Stadium!

Please check the Graduate and Guest information for the latest information. 


RSVP for the ceremony here The RSVP allows us to know how many graduates and guests to anticipate and if any special accommodations are needed. Tickets are not required for guests to attend. 

Updated Cap and Gown Info (5.24.22)

The delivery of caps and gowns to the Campus Bookstore finally arrived yesterday afternoon! As a way to help support our graduates and get sets into your hands, the campus will be covering the cost of caps and gowns this year for students who have RSVP'd. If you pre-ordered a cap and gown set, you will not be charged. The bookstore is currently sending out emails to all students who have ordered a set. If you did not preorder and have RSVP'd, you can pick up a set as well. We have been assured that sizes will be available. 

Unfortunately, graduates who asked for their caps and gowns to be delivered to your home will not be able to have them delivered in time due to the short turnaround and unpredictability of the post office. We sincerely apologize that this option is no longer available as we know some cannot easily make it to campus for various reasons. The bookstore is working to ensure students can pick up sets on campus and be available day of the ceremony at the practice fields.   

The bookstore is open today and tomorrow during normal business hours from 9a-4p. They will also be doing a drive up in Lot 14 on Wednesday from 12p-6p. If you cannot make any of these times, the bookstore will be set up in the graduate staging area to pass out caps and gowns.

We understand this is not ideal. We thank you for your patience and understanding.  

You can look at gifts and other items on the bookstore website now by clicking the link on the side bar.


The ceremony does not require proof of vaccination or masks to attend the ceremony. It is recommended that individuals wear a mask , but not required. Graduates will be seated on the field in close proximity to others. We will have masks on site in the staging area for anyone who would like to one.
