Invitations, Announcements, Diplomas and Photos

Commencement Invitations

Commencement invitations are mementos for graduating seniors and guests and are not required to attend Pitzer’s commencement ceremony. There is no limit to the number of guests a student may invite.

Pitzer College prints six invitations for each graduating senior. An announcement will be sent to graduating seniors at the beginning of April when they are available. Seniors may pick up their invitations and distribute them on their own.

Commencement Announcements

Announcements are different than invitations in that they simply announce that you are graduating from Pitzer. They are not an invitation to the commencement ceremony.

Announcements may be individually ordered and sample announcements may be viewed at Huntley Bookstore. Announcements may be ordered directly from CB Graduation Announcements. Contact 1.800.433.0296 or Allow ten working days for your order to be processed.


Original diplomas will be handed out during the commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 17, 2014.

If you do not participate in the Commencement ceremony, your diploma will be sent (approximately one week following Commencement) by certified mail to the address indicated on your Application for Graduation. Should your plans to participate in Commencement change, please notify the Office of the Registrar at 909.607.2650.

Graduation Photos
