2021 Commencement

Main page content

Plans are underway for the 2021 Commencement Ceremony. UW Tacoma is looking at multiple options for safely celebrating this monumental achievement with our graduating students.

We will work in compliance with State of Washington Covid-19 regulations as we finalize plans. For an in-person ceremony to occur the Puget Sound Region would need to be in the phase that would allow for an event of our size by April 15, 2021.

This page will continue to be your best source for the most up-to-date Commencement information.

If you are a fall 2020 graduate please ensure that you forward your UW email address before you lose your UW inbox access to ensure you receive Commencement announcements during Winter and Spring quarters.

Registration for Commencement and purchasing of caps, gowns and souvenir items will be open Monday, April 26 to Friday, May 21, 2021. Purchases will be mailed directly to graduates at the address they provide while ordering.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021.
