Classes of 2020, 2021 Commencement rescheduled for May 26 at Oracle Park
After a two-year postponement, graduates from the classes of 2020 and 2021 will finally get their in-person Commencement ceremony at Oracle Park
San Francisco State University will hold its in-person Commencement ceremony honoring the classes of 2020 and 2021 on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at Oracle Park. This will be the University’s first in-person ceremony in two years and the seventh time the downtown ballpark will host San Francisco State’s Commencement. The ballpark will also host the Class of 2022's Commencement on Friday, May 27.
The University planned to hold a make-up Commencement ceremony on Jan. 8, 2022, at Chase Center but that event was postponed due to the spread of the omicron COVID-19 variant. SF State President Lynn Mahoney was saddened by the sudden postponement and recognized the unique challenges the classes of 2020 and 2021 faced.
“For many, the pathway to graduation can be a winding and challenging one. For the classes of 2020 and 2021, those challenges were greater than we could have ever imagined, including the heartbreaking recent decision to postpone your ceremony yet again. Finding our way past these challenges to finally be able to celebrate together and in person will be incredibly gratifying,” Mahoney said. “You have all more than earned the right to be celebrated.”
More details about the May 26 ceremony will be shared as they become available. Keep checking the University’s Commencement website for updates.
