English Department Graduation Ceremony

Wednesday, June 10, 2020, 2:00pm, Meany Hall


Who's Eligible to Participate in the June Ceremonies?

Anyone who graduated in December 2019 or March 2020, or who has a graduation application on file for June 2020 or August 2020.

Applying to Graduate

All students, whether they are participating in the ceremonies or not, must apply to graduate by the applicable quarterly deadline in order to have their degrees granted officially by the UW. The final deadline for autumn, winter, and spring quarters is the third Friday of that quarter. For summer quarter graduates, students who want to participate in the June ceremonies must apply, with spring graduates, by the third Friday of spring quarter. Students should see an English adviser to file their graduation applications.

Students who want to use Graduating Senior Priority (GSP) for early registration during their final two quarters must apply much earlier, by the applicable GSP deadlines.
