Date: May 25, 2013

Time: 10:00AM

Location: Ram Stadium, Ocean Campus

The annual Commencement Ceremony for City College of San Francisco takes place at the end of every spring semester in May. The ceremony is for all CCSF A.A. & A.S. Degree candidates who meet the graduation requirements at the main campus and all the centers. The ceremony usually hosts between 400-500 graduates that cross the stage in their cap & gown while approx. 3000 guests cheer them on!

Commencement is a  wonderful experience and we encourage all graduating students to register and participate in this annual ceremony. All participating graduates, and students graduating with honors, will be listed in the Commencement Program as well as the Student Speaker. The ceremony will honor and recognize students for their hard earned academic achievment and welcome them into the ranks of C.C.S.F. alumni. We promote a strong etiquette policy, and strive to bring all students a ceremony that is worthy of their success.

The achievement of higher education should never go unrecognized or unrewarded. So know that the Office of Student Affairs welcomes you to participate in your Commencement Ceremony and is here to help ensure your commencement day is a valued and cherished experience!
