Join the Celebration!

All faculty and staff members are encouraged to honor De Anza's graduating students by attending the commencement ceremony. 

For Those Participating in the Processional to the Stage

Please come to Conference Room 109 in the Administration building –  with your graduation regalia – by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the event. Light refreshments will be available in the building lobby. 

Please be dressed in your regalia by 5:15 p.m. to allow time for securing your personal belongings, lining up, and walking to the stadium. The formal processional will begin promptly at 6 p.m.

The commencement ceremony takes approximately 90 minutes. When it concludes you will exit the stage in a procession and return to the Administration building to retrieve your belongings.

If you have any questions, please contact Pippa Gibson at or 408.864.8705.
