Get Involved and Get Rewarded

Volunteering with the UCR Parents Association is a great way to earn participation points towards the coveted "Reserved Seating" section at your student's Commencement ceremony. Each volunteer activity is worth one point. You can also earn half a point (per person) just by attending a Parent Meeting! Six points are currently required to qualify for reserved seating. Learn more here.
