Commencement 2021

This year's commencement will take the form of two live events in the Stanford Stadium, one for graduate students on June 12 and one for undergraduates  on June 13. Events will be restricted by COVID-19 guidelines, with special requirements for out of town guests. Each graduating student will receive only two guest tickets. For more information and updates check the Stanford commencement page.

There will be no in-person school-wide diploma ceremonies but stay tuned for news from your individual departments regarding virtual celebrations.  Watch this space for a list of this year's Stanford Earth graduates and awards as we near commencement!
