Dear Cuesta College Graduate:

You've worked hard to get here, and we are so proud of you and all you accomplished during your time at Cuesta College. I can't wait to celebrate you in person at the 55th Cuesta College Commencement Ceremony on Friday, December 18.

Meanwhile, we hope you share this milestone with your family & friends using our custom social media filters. You should have already received a text message with a link. If not, simply text cuestagrad2020 to 58052 and you’ll be taken to a page to access the filters along with a video greeting from your faculty & staff.

On behalf of our campus community, congratulations on your graduation! We wish you all the best for the future!

Dear Cuesta College Community,

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges and changed the way we interact as a community. The shelter in place order and social distancing require us to explore different options for celebrating graduation.

We asked our graduating students and they responded. In fact, the 1,125 students surveyed made it clear that they prefer to walk across the state at an in-person ceremony. Students want the opportunity to celebrate with their family and friends present as they receive their diploma. We also want to celebrate on May 22nd and will do so virtually with videos and social media posts.

Thank you for all your patience as Cuesta College has worked diligently to ensure that we appropriately celebrate our student graduates on their achievement.

Dr. Jill Stearns
