Onsite Graduation Ceremony


Onsite Graduation Ceremony Fall 2022


The SJSU School of Information students participate in the onsite university commencement ceremony held by the college twice a year (in fall for fall graduates and in spring for spring and summer graduates).  Graduates from fall, spring and summer will receive information from SJSU Commencement inviting them to participate in university-wide celebration events for all university graduates.

The university’s plans are in addition to our iSchool departmental online event, which only focuses on MLIS, MARA, Informatics graduates.

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

Please watch this page for more details on the university’s 2022 plans for celebrating all graduates of SJSU (organized by college). The College of Professional and Global Education fall event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 15th at 6:30 pm Pacific.
