Congratulations class of 2021! 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 compliment the UC San Diego commencements. For updates on campus-wide commencement information visit

Three ways to participate:

1. A custom military-connected graduation stole

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 mail these out in time prior to June.

2. Recognition of your graduation during our Graduation Celebration video ceremony

The Graduation Celebration video will include keynote speakers from the SVRC and the UC San Diego military-connected community. Graduates who choose to be recognized through this option will have their name, major and an optional photo featured during the ceremony. This video will be launched live through our social media and made available for future viewing.

3. A Military-Connected graduates yearbook

The Military-Connected yearbook will feature submitted photos and quotes from you and your graduating peers as well as messages of congratulations from the SVRC and campus partners. This is a great opportunity to share your future plans and words of gratitude to your support network as you reflect on your time at UC San Diego. Students who choose to participate in the yearbook will receive a free printed copy as a keepsake.
