Ticket Information

Guest Tickets

Renting regalia through the Jostens website or through the Bookstore will qualify you to receive up seven (7) Commencement tickets. Tickets will be available for pick-up at the San Francisco State University Bookstore beginning Friday, May 10, 2024. Students participating in the rental assistance program can begin picking up their regalia and tickets on May 13.

You can have someone else pick-up your tickets or regalia if needed. Have them bring a copy of your student ID and the order confirmation to the San Francisco State Bookstore ticket pick-up and let the staff there know you are picking up on a graduating student’s behalf.

Please note that replacement tickets will not be issued if your allotment is lost or destroyed. San Francisco State prohibits the direct or indirect sale or auction of Commencement tickets.

No additional tickets will be distributed. If you need more than seven (7) tickets you may be able to obtain them from fellow graduating students who will not be using their full allotment.  The Commencement Office will not have any extra tickets for distribution.

Graduates do not need a ticket to enter as long as you are wearing SF State regalia. All guests need a ticket with the exception of children younger than two.

Re-entering the Ballpark

For safety reasons Oracle Park does not allow in and out privileges. Guests will not be allowed to enter after 7:30 p.m.

Special note: Commencement occurs in a public venue and will be recorded and photographed for distribution through various SF State outlets. All audience members (or parents/ guardians of minors attending the event) acknowledge that they may appear on these recordings and photographs by virtue of their attendance at or participation in Commencement, and agree to the University’s use of photographed or videotaped materials through the University’s websites, applications and other channels of communication.
