Commencement lets you share the excitement and importance of academic accomplishments with peers, family, and friends. Cap and gown are recommended for in-person ceremonies, optional for virtual ceremonies.
Fall Commencement ceremonies will be held on the Pullman campus only.

Be advised that applying for graduation and registering for Commencement are two separate steps. Applying to graduate does not automatically register you to take part in ceremonies.

No matter what WSU campus you attend—including the online Global Campus—you can register to participate in the Pullman campus fall Commencement ceremony. To register, you must have applied to graduate or have already graduated. If you are finishing courses and expect to complete them before the cutoff date for graduation, you may participate in a Commencement ceremony.
Please register and join us for a fall ceremony for returning graduates. We hope to see you in Pullman to celebrate your graduation!
The University encourages faculty to participate to honor students’ academic achievements.
Graduates may invite as many friends and relatives as they wish to the ceremony.
Tickets are not required for admission. There are no reserved seats. Guests may sit in any of the designated guest seating areas and may come and go at their leisure. Only graduates are allowed to sit in the graduates’ seating area.
