Will Commencement attendees have to provide vaccine verification?
At this time a decision has not been made if Commencement attendees will have to provide proof of vaccination and/or a negative COVID-19 test to attend. Current campus policy states that all visitors to the campus attending recognized university events must verify vaccination status.

While the ceremonies may not adhere to our traditional ceremonies, we are committed to providing a meaningful experience to our graduates that symbolizes your achievement and celebrates all that you have accomplished throughout your academic journey. We will continue to provide furher information as ceremony details are finalized.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Congratulations Graduates!

Stanislaus State congratulates all graduates from the Class of 2020 & Class of 2021! You did it!

The Commencement Team and Committee and University extends its thanks to all who assisted and participated with the in-person ceremonies and graduation activities. This year's celebration would not have been possible without the campus community's involvement and committment. Together, we were able to provide graduates the celebration they rightfully deserved - even in the midst of a global pandemic.

We wish you all the best in your future endeavors! Remember once a Warrior, Always a Warrior!
