Updated Commencement Schedule

Effective beginning in the 2021-22 academic year, WWU will hold two live commencement events per academic year – in December and June.

Winter, Spring, and Summer 2022 graduates and their guests are invited to attend Western’s June 2022 Commencement. Ceremonies will be held Friday, June 10 through Sunday, June 12.

We are planning to invite students who graduated during the pandemic to join us for an in-person ceremony in December 2022. We are excited to be planning in-person commencement for June of this year, but we are still approaching it with some caution as COVID restrictions are just starting to be lifted. Please visit our website or contact us in September for more information.
