Congratulations Class of 2020!

 List of the Fall 2020 Graduates

Dear Graduates,

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the faculty, administration, and staff to congratulate the California State University, Bakersfield’s Fall Class of 2020 on earning bachelor’s or master’s degrees.

While we would hope to have a celebration acknowledging each graduate, we are limited on what we are able to do while maintaining a safe campus community. With a tested vaccine beginning distribution, we look forward to 2021 for the possibility of having a wonderful commencement with each graduate’s name said out loud for their family and friends to hear. This is our aim in 2021.

For now, the Commencement Office has prepared a webpage listing each graduate within their major.

Congratulations to the Fall 2020 Graduates!

Dr. Vernon Harper
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
