NEW Changes for Academic Year 18-19

WSU Tri-Cities students who participate in commencement ceremonies are considered “candidates” for graduation. Although participation in the commencement ceremony is not a guarantee or an indication of degree completion, it’s important that we celebrate only those students who have submitted their application for both undergraduate and professional degrees and are on schedule to finish their requirements to graduate. Students who will be allowed to participate in the 2019 commencement ceremony include the following:

  • Students who completed all degree requirements in Fall 2018.
  • Students expected to complete all degree requirements in Spring 2019.
  • Students with no more than 6 credits left to complete all degree requirements, who are enrolled in pertinent courses by the deadline to register for the 2019 commencement.

To RSVP attendance at the 2019 Commencement Ceremony, the online RSVP form will be available from March 11 – April 19. You will be able to confirm your attendance at that time.

To ensure your name is listed in the commencement program, your application for graduation must be received no later than 5pm on Friday, April 5, 2019.

Commencement 2019

WSU Tri-Cities will hold its annual Commencement for fall, spring, and summer graduates at the end of the spring semester in early May. We hope that mid-year degree candidates and their families will return to the campus and enjoy the day of celebration with us. Commencement for 2019 will be held on Saturday, May 4th. RSVP information will go live on this website in early January. Please check back for additional details at that time.
