Commencement

Washington State University’s virtual system-wide Spring celebration is slated to take place Saturday, May 8.

All members of the WSU faculty and staff are invited to participate in the online ceremony, which kicks off at 10 a.m. Viewers will be able to praise graduating students in the comments as well as hear from graduates directly through submitted video clips.

Every student who registered to graduate will be honored during the roll call, beginning with doctoral degree candidates, followed by master’s and bachelor’s degree recipients.

Earlier this month, faculty, staff, and community members gathered to celebrate Pullman graduates as part of the campus’ drive‑thru graduation.

WSU Health Sciences Spokane, WSU Vancouver and WSU Tri‑Cities each have drive‑thru events scheduled for this weekend following the systemwide virtual event. WSU Everett is hosting a grad bag pick up event Saturday from noon until 4 p.m.

For more information about the system-wide ceremony as well as other planned campus and college events, visit the university’s commencement website.
