Congratulations class of 2023! Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from UC San Diego! In honor of this momentous occasion, the Student Veterans Resource Center wants to recognize you and celebrate your accomplishments!

Please note that these efforts are meant to complement the UC San Diego commencements. For updates on campus-wide commencement information visit

Two ways to participate:

1. A custom military-connected graduation stole  (Order by March 31st, 2023)

  • The graduation stoles will be customized by your military branch and affiliation status and feature the UC San Diego logo. These are our gift to you and completely free. Due to shipping and production times our goal is to have these available in time for June graduations. 

2. Graduation Celebration (RSVP here)

  • Military-connected students can participate in our in-person graduation celebration on May 25th, 2023.  This is a fun way to socialize with other soon to be graduates in a casual setting. Fill out the interest form today!
