Protecting your health is our #1 concern
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, protecting the health of the entire University community must be our top priority. In-person gatherings still pose significant risk to the health of attendees.
The decision to cancel was not made lightly
Commencement is an important milestone—a time to take pride in your achievements before embarking on the next phase of your life’s journey. WSU is taking this unprecedented step so that graduates and their families can stay safe.
You are invited to participate in future Commencement ceremonies
As a Spring graduate of the Class of 2020, you have earned your degree in the face of extraordinary circumstances. You have reason to be proud, and the University salutes you.
To honor your achievements, WSU invites Spring 2020 graduates to participate in future Commencement ceremonies, to be held when the risk to public health abates.
