Onsite Graduation Ceremony

Overview

Onsite Graduation Ceremony Spring 2021

Congratulations!

The SJSU School of Information normally participates in the onsite University commencement ceremony held once a year in spring (May) to honor all fall, spring and summer graduating students. Graduates from summer, fall and spring will receive information from SJSU inviting them to participate in university-wide hybridized celebration events for all university graduates.

Update for Spring 2021: Please visit this page for information on the University’s plans for celebrating all graduates of SJSU.

This is in addition to our iSchool departmental Online event which only focuses on MLIS, MARA, Informatics graduates.

School of Information’s: Virtual Graduation Zoom Celebration, iSchool Graduation Video, and Virtual Graduation Website Platform are all separate from, and in addition to, virtual activities planned by the SJSU Commencement Office for university-wide graduates.
