Commencement at Washington College

Commencement is a time for much College pride. We want this day to be as memorable for you as it is for the College and all those involved. We ask that you encourage your graduate to wear appropriate attire (shirt, tie, and long pants for men, dress or blouse and pants for women) and hard-soled shoes with their gowns on Commencement and to abide by all College policies. Please remember that tobacco and alcohol products are not permitted at Commencement. Graduates and guests sit close together, so lighted tobacco products and popping champagne corks can cause serious injury. These items are expressly prohibited at the Commencement ceremony.

The Registrar’s Office has provided a checklist that will help guide students through their responsibilities leading up to Commencement day. Students can also find information on general graduation requirements and policies on the Registrar’s Office Graduation Requirements page.

Most of all, we hope you will find that the Commencement Weekend activities create a wonderful environment in which to celebrate and enjoy this achievement with your graduate – congratulations!
