This year, we’re bringing our commencement celebration home!
Hosting at WSU Everett will allow us to offer a more intimate event celebrating our smaller graduating class. It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our beautiful campus and introduce your family and friends to the new Coug statue—a symbol of our community’s strength and unity.
Please see the FAQs below for details about tickets, parking, and accommodation for unticketed guests.


Do I need to register for commencement AND apply for graduation?

YES. You must register for commencement AND apply for graduation on MyWSU. Registration for commencement is now closed. Please connect with your advisor if you have not registered for commencement at WSU Everett.

GRADUATION and COMMENCEMENT are two different things.

Satisfying all academic requirements (university, college, and departmental) for a degree.

Ceremony officiated by the University Executive Leadership that recognizes graduates’ achievements.

Participation in the Commencement ceremony is not a guarantee or an indication of degree completion.

Is there a commencement rehearsal?

YES. It will take place the same day as the ASWSUE student party. Details to come.

I’m a WSU Global Student. Where is my campus commencement information?

How many people can I invite?

Due to our smaller graduating class, we have the unique opportunity this year to host our commencement ceremony on campus. However, we are faced with certain limitations regarding the number of guests each graduate can invite. After careful consideration and in our efforts to accommodate all graduates and their loved ones, we must adhere to a strict policy regarding guest invitations. Each graduate may only receive two (2) tickets to the live event in room 102 and two (2) tickets to the livestream in room 101.

We understand that this limitation may be disappointing. If you have unticketed guests, we will host additional live-streams of the ceremony in the Student Services lobby and in room 254. After the ceremony, all guests are welcome to join us in the lobby and outside for refreshments, pictures, and other festivities.

We are pleased to share that the ceremony will be live-streamed on YouTube, allowing friends and family who cannot be with us in person to join in celebrating your significant achievement. Furthermore, the recording will be made available shortly after the ceremony, ensuring that no one misses out on this joyous occasion.

Where is the ceremony? What are our parking options?

  • Location: 915 N. Broadway, Tiered lecture hall (Room 102) on campus. Livestream will be in room 101.
  • Date & Time:
    • Doors will open at noon on the day of the ceremony. Please arrive at the Student Success Center to prepare before the event. Lunch will be served.
    • Parking Lot K is available for parking at no charge.
    • Commencement begins at 2:00 p.m. sharp.

How do I get my Club/Honors/Veteran’s cord?

Special/Club cords: speak with your organization president or club advisor. For Honors cords and Veteran’s cords, contact your academic advisor.

How do I get my photos?

A link to all commencement photos will be available on this website within one week of the commencement ceremony.

Can I take my guests on a tour of 915 N. Broadway?

Sure! The building will be open from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, May 11.

Who do I contact with questions?

Please contact your academic advisor with any questions about graduation or commencement.
