Cal Poly Humboldt is excited to host two Fall 2022 Commencement ceremonies to recognize the achievements of the graduating class on Friday, December 16 in Lumberjack Arena.

The ceremonies will be held at the following times:

1:00 p.m.—College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences and College of Professional Studies

4:00 p.m.—College of Natural Resources & Sciences

The events will be livestreamed, and links to the livestream will be available on the Commencement website and Humboldt homepage on the day of the event. The colleges will be hosting a joint reception for faculty, graduates, and their families between the two ceremonies in the West Gym.

In 2022 more than 2,000 students will have earned degrees and credentials. About 300 graduates have signed up to participate in the in-person Fall 2022 commencement ceremonies.

“It's exciting to honor all graduates now twice a year,” says Shannon Collart, event coordinator. “Celebrating the hard work of the students, faculty, and staff at my alma mater is truly incredible. Congrats to the 2022 grads! Looking forward to seeing where you go and how you'll change the world."

Humboldt’s first graduation event took place at Arcata’s Minor Theatre in May 1915, with 15 women receiving teaching certificates.
