***We are following closely with Stanford's policy updates in response to COVID-19. We are committed to upholding public safety and are continuously monitoring the situation. As of Mar 13, 2020, Black Graduation is still scheduled to proceed in-person on campus. We will continue to update this web page as we receive further notice.
Registration is now open for the 2020 Black Graduation Ceremony.
Every graduate needs to be registered in order to participate in the Black Graduation Celebration. To ensure their participation, we strongly encourage parents to register and pay for their graduate. Registration is a one-time, single fee. You do not need to pay a registration fee for family, friends, and other guests of the graduate. In true Black community tradition, graduates may invite as many guests as they wish. The registration price schedule is as follows:
February 10, 2020 - March 20, 2020
March 21, 2020 - May 22, 2020
We have negotiated an exceptional rate of $139/night with the Marriott-Santa Clara, which is only twenty minutes from campus! Please use this link to reserve your room. Our special rate is for the nights of June 12th, June 13th, and June 14th, 2020. The last day to reserve your hotel room is May 22nd, 2020. Rooms book quickly as we get closer to graduation so we suggest booking as soon as possible!
