WSU graduates celebrate as confetti falls following a commencement ceremony.
Commencement ceremonies are planned from May 3-11 across the Washington State University System.

This year’s Fall Commencement ceremony is taking place Saturday, Dec. 9, on the WSU Pullman campus.

Around 875 soon-to-be graduates are expected to walk across the stage inside Beasley Coliseum as part of this year’s event, which is free and open to the public. Graduates and their families will gather inside Beasley Coliseum for the event, which is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

Many of the parking lots on campus will be free for the event, with guidance available via the university’s Fall Commencement parking map.

Any members of the WSU community who are interested in volunteering at the ceremony are asked to contact Sarah Mahaffy, director of events for the Office of the Pullman Chancellor.

WSU Pullman is the only campus that hosts an in-person fall graduation ceremony. More information on the event is available on the WSU Commencement website.
