Graduation Celebrations

Saturday, May 8, 2021

Congratulations! Let’s make Saturday, May 8 a day to celebrate your accomplishments.

There are two celebratory graduation events this spring: the system-wide virtual celebration and an on-campus drive-through. Register separately for each event.

Virtual System-wide WSU Graduation Celebration

Begin your day with the Virtual System-wide WSU Graduation Celebration from 10 to 11 a.m. online.

Learn more Register by April 12!

WSU Vancouver Drive-through Graduation Celebration

Next, put on your favorite Cougar gear, or wear regalia if you choose, load your COVID-safe pod into your vehicle, and drive to campus between 1 and 4:30 p.m. for the WSU Vancouver Drive-through Graduation Celebration. Pick up your diploma cover (honor cords and stoles if you earned them), and celebrate your accomplishment with plenty of Cougar spirit, music and some fun surprises!

Register by April 12!

If you would like to rent regalia as part of your celebration (it is not required), you can find regalia information here.

Please note: If you rent regalia, you are able to keep the cap and tassel. If you prefer not to rent regalia, you will still have the opportunity to purchase a souvenir tassel from either The Bookie or from the Herff Jones website.

We look forward to seeing you from a safe distance and from behind our face coverings. We will take every precaution to keep all Cougs safe throughout the event. We encourage you to do the same!
