The schedule of ceremonies is set for June 2022 Commencement. There will be two ceremonies on Friday, three on Saturday, and three on Sunday. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the College of Science and Engineering will have multiple ceremonies.

Commencement Reservations

The deadline to reserve a seat at commencement has passed. However, late reservations are still being accepted. If your plans now allow you to attend commencement, submit your reservation. Note that your guests will not need tickets to attend. In our work to redesign and enhance our Commencement program, one goal we have had is to eliminate the need for tickets so that students can bring their families and guests without the stress of having to leave a family member at home. Students will be asked to share the number of guests that they anticipate bringing when they complete their reservation for commencement, as this will assist us with planning.

Reserve your seat now. To be eligible to participate in the June ceremony, a student must have graduated or have completed the graduation application no later than May 6. All eligible candidates will receive notification via their WWU student e-mail. Graduates who will be completing degrees from more than one college will have the opportunity to pick which college ceremony they will attend. If a graduate requires accommodation for religious observance, they should complete the reservation form and then email the graduation team at Commencement@wwu.edu.

Your college is determined by your major. If you do not know your college, please find the list of majors here. If you have more than one major, or degree, from different colleges, please find information about your options on the commencement eligibility page.

Masters and doctorate candidates from the Graduate School will be hooded in the ceremony associated with the college their degree is listed under in the Programs of Study section of the online catalog.

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.
