Commencement Update

Posted: January 11, 2021

At this time and date, it is unknown when our annual Commencement Ceremonies for the Class of 2020 and 2021 may occur. Based on current data for Stanislaus County and projections for the next few months, we do not believe that in-person, on-campus Commencement Ceremonies will be held this May 2021. Stanislaus State remains committed to hosting in-person Commencement Ceremonies at a time we are able to do so safely and in compliance with regulations. We will continue to monitor conditions daily through the spring to evaluate if and to what extent our in-person ceremonies may be possible

Please check back for regular updates.
