Asian American Graduation

Main content start


The Asian American Virtual Graduation Celebration brings together families and friends to recognize the achievements of our graduating students. This event is one of the few ceremonies where parents and families are recognized for their contributions to the success of the graduate. Graduating students and their families are presented with commemorative gifts as part of the program.

In accordance with Stanford’s plans for commencement, the Asian American Graduation Celebration will be hosted as a virtual celebration on Saturday, June 12, 2021 from 5-7PM PST. Our students and staff are working hard to develop a wonderful virtual experience to celebrate this important milestone. With assurance from Stanford’s Office of the President, we remain hopeful that we will be able to celebrate the Class of 2020 when conditions allow us to do this in person.

The 2021 Asian American Virtual Graduation Celebration will be free of charge and all registered graduates will be eligible to receive a custom graduation gift upon completing the requested materials to participate in this momentous event.
