School & Department Celebrations

Graduates will be honored at individual school or department celebrations at various times and locations during Commencement Weekend. Information about these events can be found below or by following the school links in the menu to the left.

Arrows indicate links will go directly to the school or department website. Questions about these events should be directed to the school or department.

Please Note:

These events may be located some distance from the stadium. There is no general campus transportation from the Stanford Stadium to these sites. Please plan accordingly. Consult the Stanford Commencement Map for walking directions. Following the diploma ceremonies, limited shuttle service is available along portions of Serra Mall to return to the stadium parking areas. Please visit the Parking & Shuttles page for routes. For those with mobility limitations, it is recommended that you drive from the stadium to the diploma ceremony site to drop-off and/or park closer. For assistance locating close disabled parking or drop-off locations near the diploma ceremony site, please complete a Special Needs Request form by May 27.
