University Commencement

Congratulations Class of 2020!

Fresno State will not conduct commencement ceremonies in May as originally scheduled. This decision, informed by guidance from public health officials, was not made lightly. The University looks forward to celebrating all of its graduates at an in-person ceremony at a later date when it is deemed safe to do so.

Graduation Stories

There are approximately 6,400 students in the graduating class of 2020. From first-generation graduates whose parents didn’t receive bachelor’s degrees, to those who continue a proud family legacy of being a Bulldog.… ALL of our graduates represent Fresno State’s mission— to boldly educate and empower students for success. Read their inspiring stories here.
