Virtual Commencement FAQ's

Ceremony Details

When will my virtual commencement be?

Brandman University’s virtual commencements will take place over the weekend of June 12-15, 2020. Ceremonies will be grouped by graduates’ schools or degree programs. A full schedule is listed above by School.

How long will each virtual commencement be?

To be mindful of your time, Brandman University’s virtual ceremonies will be about 35 to 70 minutes in duration, depending on the number of students in a particular ceremony.

Will my family and friends be able to watch?

Yes! We highly encourage you to invite your family and friends to join you for your virtual ceremony. Links to view the virtual ceremony will be provided to graduates closer to the ceremony date, so you can share that information with your guests.

Will my name be read aloud during my virtual commencement?

Each ceremony will include the reading of our graduates’ names in recognition of your accomplishments.  Additionally, graduates will have the opportunity to submit a personal statement and photo, which will also be included during the name reading portion of the ceremony.  See the How to Participate tab for submission details.

Will I be allowed to walk in a future commencement at Brandman?

In addition to the virtual ceremonies, we would like to extend an invitation to our 2020 graduates to participate in one of our spring 2021 ceremonies.  We plan to resume in-person events next year if it will be safe to gather at that time and social distancing restrictions have been discontinued.
