Many departments host diploma ceremonies and receptions.

Give in Honor of the Class of 2020

Many SF State students (including those in the class of 2020) are facing unprecedented financial emergencies. The HOPE Crisis Fund was established in 2015 to provide resources based on an individual student's needs.

Requests for support have increased 3,400% since the onset of COVID-19.
