Fall 2019 Commencement Ceremonies

Wednesday, December 18 | Event Center at SJSU 

Thursday, December 19 | Event Center at SJSU


The final schedule for ceremonies for Fall 2019 graduates will be announced shortly.

Commencement decorum

Sometimes, in the understandable rush to start celebrating with loved ones and get on with post-commencement parties and picture-taking, participants might be tempted to leave the vicinity early, before the ceremony has concluded. Leaving prior to the end of the event diminishes the experience for those students who have yet to walk on stage and their families who have come to cheer them on.

Graduates are expected to return to their seats after the on-stage presentation and remain seated for the duration of the ceremony so that each of your fellow graduates receives the same recognition. 

Appropriate regaila is required to participate at commencement and is available through the Spartan Bookstore and online. Access regalia and announcements online

Flowers and merchandise

Flowers and merchandise will be sold at all ceremonies Avaya Stadium and Event Center at SJSU. Pre-order your gift in advance to ensure it is waiting at commencement.
