TIME: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Additional event information, registration, and updates will be provided to graduates via their CSUN Gmail account. In order to to stay updated on all important information related to the GradFest and for the opportunity to register for your attendance please continue to monitor your CSUN email for updates.

GradFest email correspondence was sent out on February 21st. If at any time you did not receive an email, it could be for the following reasons:

  • The email got placed in the junk/spam folder. Check for emails coming from the Commencement Office
  • You didn't complete the Graduation Application process at the time the GradFest email was sent (note: students have till Friday, March 1, 2024, to apply for graduation to participate at commencement)


  • TO REGISTER: To register for the event please check your CSUN email for a link to create your Marching Order (MO) Account. The email should look like this
  • WHY REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY: A registration for this event was created to help space out our graduates throughout the two days of the event and allow for smoother and quicker queue lines, wait times, and occupancy limit adherence for the CSUN Campus Store venue location.   
  • UNABLE TO REGISTER (SECURE AT TICKET?): If you were unable to officially 'register' for the GradFest event and secure a ticket for a specific time slot, then you can still attend the event as on 'stand-by'.  Stand-by participants will simply need to hold in a short queue line to ensure that the CSUN Campus Store's occupancy will allow for additional folks. We suspect this will be a short wait (less than 5 minutes).
