Information for Graduates

Commencement

SDSU hosts one university-wide commencement ceremony in the spring. Graduates from all terms are welcome to participate in the ceremony, including those who will graduate the following summer or fall terms. Some colleges and departments hold individual graduation ceremonies at the end of other terms, and students should check with their dean's office for information on how to RSVP and attend those events.
