Announcements, Diplomas & Gift Boxes

Commencement Announcements

The first graduating class of 1965 voted for the diploma to be written in Latin. Stephen L. Glass (left), founding professor of classics at Pitzer College, prepared the first draft.

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.


The degree conferral date is May 28, 2021. Diplomas will be mailed directly to all graduates during the first week of June. Normally graduates would receive their diplomas at the ceremony in mid-May. However, they are being distributed a few weeks later this year due to the changes in the academic calendar at the Claremont Colleges as a result of COVID-19. If you have any questions, please email the Office of the Registrar at
