Commencement celebrates a pharmacy student’s completion of the PharmD degree program, providing a special moment in the presence of family and friends to reflect upon their previous years and look ahead to their future careers.

Due to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention related to the COVID-19 outbreak, the commencement ceremony will not be held in-person. This year graduates will be honored in an online commencement ceremony to recognize and celebrate the individual and collective accomplishments of the UCSF PharmD Class of 2021P.

As a result of recent curricular transformation, the UCSF School of Pharmacy is graduating two distinct classes in 2021.

The commencement ceremony described on this page is for students who entered in 2017 and matriculated under the four-year pathway curriculum. The commencement ceremony for students who entered in 2018 and matriculated under the three-year, year-round curriculum can be found at Class of 2021T Commencement. Guests who are unsure of which ceremony to view should check with their graduate.
