About Commencement

CARmencement 2021!

While we are saddened that we cannot hold in-person commencement ceremonies at Golden 1 Center this year, we are excited to invite all graduating seniors from the class of 2020 and 2021 to attend the Drive Through Graduation Celebration, taking place in May, 2021 on the Sacramento State Campus.

This interactive, COVID-safe event will allow you to drive through campus in your vehicle, get waved on and celebrated by faculty and staff, view commencement speeches and videos, listen to music, AND get individually recognized... all from the comfort and safety of your vehicle. Grads are also encouraged to decorate their vehicles and join in the festivities.

All graduates will be able to register for their preferred dates and timeslots to attend the celebration, when they RSVP to attend. When you arrive during your selected timeslot, all you have to do is show up with your Grad Pass (ticket), your OneCard, and your COVID bubble buddies, and get ready to celebrate!

The entire process should take roughly 1 hour in your vehicle, so plan accordingly with gas, snacks, and water.

There will be a limit of 1 car per graduate (no caravans).

RSVPs are required. Additional details will be released soon.
