2017 Commencement


Commencement is Changing

UPDATE 12/2/16

In the last month, we have conducted an extensive analysis of available dates and venues. We gathered input from students through student focus groups and from an online survey sent by ASUWB.  The commencement committee (composed of students and staff) has submitted its recommendations to Chancellor Yeigh. This report is currently being reviewed by the President’s office and the UW Board of Regents. We will notify you by email, update our website and Facebook page as soon as possible so you and your families can make plans accordingly.



The Office of Commencement is undergoing a thorough review of the annual commencement ceremony. Due to the growth in recent years, we have outgrown the current venue. This is an opportunity to review the ceremony in its entirety – venue, day of the week, program structure, and more.

If you have any questions, email or call 425-352-5166.

Thank you!
