COVID-19 Updates:

University of Washington Tacoma officials are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely in relation to the Commencement ceremony. No decisions or changes have been made, however, the current situation is very fluid. We will do our best to keep you updated with the latest developments and how they might impact Commencement.

The latest COVID-19 developments can be found on the UW Tacoma Novel Coronavirus Information page. Stay safe!  We will find a way to celebrate!

The University of Washington Tacoma will hold one Commencement ceremony on Monday, June 15, 2020 at the Tacoma Dome. Students who graduate in autumn 2019 or winter quarter 2020, along with students who applied to graduate in spring 2020 or summer quarter 2020, are encouraged to participate.

Students will be able to request up to 10 guest tickets during the online registration process in May 2020.  If tickets are remaining at the end of the online registration period students will be able to request additional guest tickets above the 10.  Graduating students do not require a ticket for the ceremony.
