commencement update

posted: november 18, 2020

at this time and date, it is unknown when our annual commencement cermonies 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.

at this time, stanislaus county's risk tier is purple. purple tier restricts indoor activities and affects outdoor capacity based on social distancing requirements. we will continue to monitor conditions in the coming months ahead (december through march) to evaluate if and to what extent our in-person ceremonies may be possible.

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.

please continue to check back for regular site updates.

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.
