Commencement Ceremony

Commencement for Spring 2020

As President Mary Papazian wrote in her message to campus, San Jose State will not be able to host live commencement ceremonies in May 2020. We recognize that nothing can replace the experience of celebrating your accomplishments at a live ceremony with your family and loved ones, which is why we invite you to walk across the stage at a future live ceremony.

The campus community still wants to celebrate you and your accomplishments by creating a place where you can feel acknowledged.
