Congratulations on the completion of
your degree at Fresno State!
As a candidate for a degree, you are finally reaching one of your hard-earned goals! Therefore, join the Student Involvement Center, your faculty and peers for a university-wide formal commencement ceremony this spring semester that honors all students upon completion of their undergraduate, master's, or doctoral degree.
We hope the ceremony commemorating your achievement will be enjoyable and memorable to you and your guests. We have designed a Commencement guide to provide you with information and instructions about the ceremony. There is no rehearsal, so please read the entire guide carefully and share the information with your guests.
If this guide leaves any of your questions unanswered, or if you are unsure about any aspect of Commencement, please contact the Student Involvement Center by phone at 559.278.2741 or the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs at 559.278.2541.
In addition to the university-wide spring commencement ceremony, many colleges, schools, programs, and/or departments have individual ceremonies* to honor their graduates, so you may attend multiple ceremonies.
*Please note that some of the smaller ceremonies require an RSVP from the graduate and/or tickets for guest admission.
