Graduates! Pick up your commencement tickets and regalia June 6

Post Date:06/02/2017 3:56 p.m.

Graduates can pick up their caps and gowns along with their tickets in Syre Student Center between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on June 6 during Orca Day. Photo ID is required! Students may purchase a cap and gown in person for $40 cash during that time.

Important commencement information:

This year's commencement ceremony is June 16. Due to safety considerations, graduates are not allowed to bring bags of any kind to the commencement ceremony. The College recommends that commencement guests evaluate the contents of their bags and pockets as they may be subject to search, as needed. Guests are prohibited from bringing balloons, backpacks, coolers and duffel bags inside the Pavilion (Gym). Bags larger than 1 cubic foot (12" x 12" x 12") will not be permitted unless there is a medical or child care related reason; in such cases they may be subject to additional security. 

Best practice is to leave all bags at home. Learn more about WCC's commencement ceremony here.
