UCSD Places Holds on Some Protesters’ Diplomas

At least seven UC San Diego students who were arrested at recent protests over the war in Gaza have had holds placed on their diplomas. The news comes just days before the class of 2024 is set to graduate.

The holds were ordered by the UC Board of Regents.

“All students who were arrested on campus for violating the law must go through the applicable student conduct process,” the university said.

To have the holds removed, a review process must first be conducted. The process can take up to a month to complete.

According to CBS news, the UC San Diego Police Department has also begun referring arrests from the May 6 protests to the City Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

Despite the crackdown on disruptive behavior, unrest has continued at college campuses across the state. Eight student protesters were arrested at UC Santa Barbara last week, two days after a group took over Girvetz Hall.
