Save the Date: Fall 2021 Commencement
On September 2, President Papazian announced that after nearly two years, San José State University is finally able to safely host in-person commencement ceremonies!
That means that this December our Fall 2021 graduating students will be invited to attend their college commencement ceremony, and our Spring 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 graduated students will be invited to attend a makeup ceremony of their choice.
