Assembly and Processional

Valid ID Required

Due to stringent security measures, all students participating in commencement are required to present their SDSU RedID card (preferred) or a valid, government-issued picture ID in order to be admitted to campus.

Students who do not bring valid ID will not be allowed to participate in commencement.


The processional will enter the commencement site from one direction, providing a colorful view of candidates and faculty in their full academic regalia.

After arriving at your seat, please remain standing until the master of ceremony signals you to sit.

Following closing remarks by the dean, the master of ceremony will lead the recessional of graduates and dignitaries from the commencement site back to the assembly area.
