Welcome Graduates!

On behalf of the entire college community, it is our pleasure to extend our heartfelt congratulations and invite you to the City College of San Francisco’s 83rd Annual Commencement Exercises.

We hope this celebration of your academic achievement will become a wonderful memory that you will cherish for years to come.

Commencement is a significant occasion in the life of any student; one we hope is enhanced by the presence of family and friends. Your knowledge, understanding, and cooperation with all the guidelines are imperative to ensure an enjoyable and memorable ceremony for everyone.


Please remember that attending the Commencement Ceremony is not equivalent to degree completion. If you have any questions, please visit the Admissions & Reords Office (Conlan Hall, Room 107, Ocean Campus) or call (415) 239-3285.

Once again, our congratulations and best wishes for your continued success!
