General Information:

YOU WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IF YOU DO NOT COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION PROCESS AND SUBMIT THE REQUIRED PICTURE BY THE DEADLINE DEADLINE (TBA). It will likely be in early May.

Please see "Important Dates " for more information. 

1. NO PARTICIPATION FEE (WAIVED for 2021)

Due to the nature of the event, there is NO REGISTRATION FEE. However, EVERYONE must still follow the same REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS (Go to "Registration Instructions" Tab)

2.THE CLCC SASH AND MEDALLION ("CLCC GradPack"). OPTIONAL 

Participating graduates have the opportunity to PURCHASE a CLCC Sash/Medallion GradPack that includes a sash of their chosen heritage and a CLCC medallion. The cost is $15.00. Graduates will select ONE sash representing ONE National Heritage during the REGISTRATION process (since we are including the class of 2020, we do not have enough sashes to offer dual sashes to represent your dual heritage). The sash will be distributed on campus at a date and location TBD. A purchase receipt and your Fresno State I.D. are required to pick up your CLCC GradPack. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PICK IT UP FOR ANYONE ELSE. Replacements are not available so please do not misplace or lose them.

NOTE:  There is a limited amount of sashes and medallions. This is especially true for non-Mexican heritage sashes since it is difficult to predict how many will be requested.  Sashes and medallions will be provided on a first come first serve basis.

3.CLCC SCHEDULED VIEWING DATE 

Information on how to view the virtual ceremony will be emailed to your Fresno State email address. The Fresno State Virtual Chicano/Latino Commencement Celebration will be available via Facebook Live on: May 29th, 2021 at 3 pm.

4.  PICTURE in GRADUATION REGALIA 

A picture in academic regalia is required to be included in the virtual celebration. You will receive a link from the company "Marching Order"  that will direct you to their website. It is here that you submit your photos, your full name, a graduate message, and even a voice recording of the pronounciation of your name.

5. VIDEO of the CHICANO/LATINO COMMENCEMENT CELEBRATION

After airing on Facebook Live, the virtual celebration will remain on our CLCC Facebook page in perpetuity for you and your family to enjoy for years to come. You will be able to share the virtual ceremony with family and friends anywhere in the world
