Commencement is an exciting time for graduating students and their families to celebrate students’ academic achievements at the CIA. Do you have a student graduating soon? Here’s some important information you’ll want to know about the big day.
All California campus commencement ceremonies are held at the CIA at Greystone campus in the Ventura Center for Menu Research and Development, main building, third floor.
The graduation ceremony is a non-ticketed event; however, students must RSVP with the number of guests at the time they complete the graduation application to ensure adequate seating is available.
All guests will park at the CIA at Greystone campus, located at 2555 Main Street, St. Helena, CA.
The Culinary Celebration following the graduation ceremony is a ticketed event. Students are given four tickets: one for themselves and three for guests. Additional tickets for the Culinary Celebration can be purchased for $45 each in the Education Office.
It’s never too soon to begin planning your trip to St. Helena for commencement! On the Visiting Campus page, you’ll find travel directions, a virtual tour of campus, hotel information, and more.
Graduating students can access additional information about commencement from CIA Main Menu, the student portal.
