API Commencement is an annual graduation ceremony held to recognize the personal and academic achievements of graduating seniors at Cal Poly. This event provides a more intimate atmosphere for family and friends to congratulate the seniors of 2015. Traditional college graduation ceremonies are often very large, long, and have limited seating and tickets available, but we are committed to organizing a ceremony these graduates deserve. Please join us in this special celebration!
