WSU Spring Commencement
Saturday, May 5, 2018
Beasley Coliseum

The University Commencement Assembly is filled with pageantry, recognition of honors, individual recognition, and conferring of degrees. All students are encouraged to attend. Tickets are not required.

Assembly Instructions

Contact the Commencement Office at (509) 335-6674 or with questions.

Assemble no later than 1/2 hour prior to the start of the ceremony outside the SE tunnel entrance facing the baseball field. The line-up areas are very congested and we ask that family members please not come in this entrance but use the regular coliseum entrances and go in to find seating.
