Commencement Update

Posted: October 15, 2020

As of October 15, large-scale gatherings such as Commencement are NOT currently allowed per state and regional guidelines. We are closely monitoring conditions to help determine appropriate reschedule dates. Stanislaus State remains committed to hosting on-site, in-person Commencement cermonies at a time when large-scale gatherings are permitted.

Commencement Postponed

Posted: June 19, 2020

We understand the importance the annual Commencement ceremonies have to our graduates and their families. Stanislaus State remains fully committed to rescheduling ceremonies at a date and time where regional and state public health guidance permits us to do so.  

Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases across the state of California and within Stanislaus County, we are unable to establish a new date for the ceremonies at this time. Changing guidance pertaining to the number of individuals present at these events and social distancing factors continue to add complexities to our ceremony planning and logistics. Another consideration in selecting a new date are the outdoor weather conditions on our outdoor venue as we transition into the summer and fall months. 

Please check back for updates made to the Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2020.
