SDSU Commencement - Congratulations graduating class of 2015

 *** Rain Notice***

In case of rain, candidates should arrive to L Lot, across from Parking Structure 4, at least 45 minutes before the processional start time, unless otherwise noted for your college. See college links below.
Once candidates enter through security and show their RedID, they will proceed directly inside Viejas Arena where they will be seated according to their department.

Please note candidates will be unable to bring umbrellas inside the arena due to the limited mobility on the arena floor and potential tripping hazard. However, there will be bins located at the entrance to store umbrellas during the ceremony.

All guests will be allowed to bring umbrellas into the arena, but they cannot be the bigger beach or golf umbrella size.

Cultural Graduation Events

Each year, several cultural graduation events are hosted by various departments, clubs, organizations and affinity groups. Although they are not designed to replace the traditional graduation ceremonies hosted by San Diego State University, these events bring together friends, family and community while celebrating the rich diversity of our campus.
