Graduation Celebration Events

Students participating in the Native Grad event off campus.

Below is a list of graduation celebration events that have been shared with the Commencement office. These events will not include any awarding of degrees or related rituals that traditionally take place at the official Commencement ceremonies.

This is also not a comprehensive list, so please contact your department, student organization or college directly if you do not see an event listed below. The list will be updated as information is available.

COVID-19 Protocols:

The university will follow the California Department of Public Health’s policies on mega indoor events. All staff, faculty, graduates and guests are encouraged to use the SJSU COVID-19 Symptom Check Tool before arriving on campus.

As of Monday, January 9, based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 metrics for Santa Clara County, which are currently at the LOW level for cases and related hospitalizations, SJSU no longer requires individuals to wear a mask or face covering in indoor spaces, but all are strongly encouraged to wear masks or face coverings indoors.

* Masks will continue to be required at the Student Wellness Center and Spartan Food Pantry.

Restrictions may tighten based on the risks associated with the commencement ceremonies. Please check our website often for up to date information and announcements regarding the safety requirements of these commencement ceremonies.
