Ceremonies & Events

On June 14, 2017, the University of Washington Tacoma will honor the graduating class of 2017 at the University’s 27th Annual Commencement Exercises. Over 1,700 students will graduate this year in two ceremonies held at the Tacoma Dome to the cheers and applause of more than 12,000 family members and friends.

All graduates will walk across the commencement stage and have their photographs taken as they receive their diploma mementos (a purple leather diploma cover bearing the official seal of the University of Washington).

It will be a once-in-a-lifetime event in the lives of graduates and parents alike – an experience not to be missed.

For information about other graduation celebrations, please check with your school or department.
