Important Information for Family & Friends

  • Health conditions at CMC and The Claremont Colleges have improved; thus, proof of vaccination or testing for guests attending commencement events will not be required. Mask wearing is strongly recommended, though not required. The College unequivocally supports the personal decisions to wear a mask indoors or outside.
  • CMC provides wheelchair access for individuals who may need accommodation (however, we do not provide wheelchairs or rides). Shuttles will be provided before and after the ceremony to assist guests parking north and south of Pritzlaff Field. If you have any special concerns, please direct them to the Office of Events.
  • The College requests that guests refrain from bringing pets to the outdoor commencement ceremony. Service animals are permitted. Thank you for your compliance.
  • Tickets are not required for the graduation ceremony. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Seats may not be reserved but may be held if a family member remains under the marquee. Staff members will be onsite to assist with seating and any special needs.
