Welcome to the Registrar's Office

Semester Updates

To further limit the spread of COVID-19 within our local community, effective immediately, Registrar's Office staff will be working almost entirely remotely to provide services to our stakeholders. While we won’t be able to answer phone calls during the period of remote operations, we want you to be aware services and updates related to the Registrar's Office.

Commencement Ceremony UPDATE

  • A virtual Commencement will be held June 18, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. Details about the ceremony will be made available on commencement.sfsu.edu, so please continue to check your email and the Commencement website for details. This site also has information about ordering regalia and other items to commemorate your graduation.
  • SF State will work on a date for an in-person ceremony, hopefully in spring of 2021, and keep you informed as we learn when we are allowed to resume large events.
  • Regularly visit the Commencement website for important ceremony updates.

It is also important to know that regardless of your academic standing, no student will be academically disqualified at the end of spring 2020.

Extension of Incompletes

Students who had an Incomplete grade contract that expires at the end of the spring 2020 or summer 2020 terms will be granted an automatic extension until the end of the fall 2020 term.

 

We are working to update our system to allow you to make these changes -- look for an email once this is available! (Instructions available on cms.sfsu.edu.)
