College graduation is a big milestone. Celebrate your scholar's achievement at their San Diego State University graduation ceremony. Commencement ceremonies take place May 11-14, 2017.
Each school at the university holds its own graduation ceremony. The schedule this year is:
- May 11: Imperial Valley Campus
- May 12: College of Arts and Letters
- May 12: College of Sciences
- May 13: Fowler College of Business

Whichever school's commencement you attend, the grand marshal will lead a processional into the venue. The dean and guest speakers will address the graduates, and then the university president will award the students their degrees. Then, after an exit processional, your celebration can begin!
Days Inn San Diego Hotel Circle Near SeaWorld is only 7 miles from SDSU. Staying at a hotel near SDSU means you'll spend less time traveling to the site for the ceremony and more time enjoying your time with the new grad. Toast to their success with a champagne cocktail at our restaurant.
You can turn your graduation visit into a vacation. Kick back and relax by our pool, or grab the hop-on/hop-off bus at our front door to get to all the sights of San Diego. The bus will take you to the waterfront, to Old Town, to Balboa Park, and many other sites. Take the new grad with you and let them show you their favorite spots in town (other than the university library, that is)! Don't forget that we offer special rates to our San Diego State partners! Please contact our hotel agents at 800-227-4743 and mention your SDSU Partnership for special rates, and amenities that only YOU have access to!
