Dear Department of Economics Recent Graduates and Current Students,

Congratulations to those of you who majored in Economics or Business Economics and earned your degree from UCLA in Fall Quarter 2020 or Winter Quarter 2021! For those of you who will be graduating at the end of Spring Quarter 2021 or summer 2021, you are almost there!

To celebrate your accomplishments, we are creating a “UCLA Memories” publication that will be housed on the UCLA Department of Economics website and will be available for viewing beginning on June 12, 2021.

Please submit your favorite memory of your time at UCLA by completing the information on the form that can be found at:

Please note that there is a 750 character limit and submissions will be evaluated for appropriateness to appear on the UCLA Department of Economics website.

Please do not submit a memory unless you graduated in Fall Quarter 2020 or Winter Quarter 2021 or will be able to complete your degree in Spring Quarter 2021 or summer 2021.

Deadline for Submission: May 16, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PDT

The Department of Economics will also create a formal commencement program with eligible students’ names included.

Make sure that your name is on the College’s eligibility list by going to and reviewing the “Graduation Checklist” that is under “Additional Information.”

An item to pay particular attention to is for the Privacy Restriction. If you have a privacy restriction that prevents your information from being disclosed to the public, you will need to remove that restriction in order to be included in the Department of Economics’ publications.

If you have any questions about these publications, please send them to the Department of Economics’ undergraduate counseling office via the MyUCLA Message Center. You can access the MyUCLA Message Center directly through your MyUCLA page or by going to: Please title your message: Economics Graduation Publications.

Information about the College of Letters and Science’s commencement plans can be found at

We look forward to honoring you online in June. Although the Department of Economics will not hold an in-person or virtual ceremony in June of 2021, we hope that there will be an opportunity for you to participate in an in-person ceremony, with your family and friends present, once it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please take care and stay healthy. Again, congratulations!
