Commencement

Commencement Celebration

Saturday, December 10, 2016

E.A. Diddle Arena

Graduate and undergraduate degree candidates will be recognized individually within the college in which their degrees were earned. There will be no rehearsal for students; marshals will guide and provide instructions for the Grand March and individual recognition portion of the ceremony. Each ceremony is expected to last approximately 2 hours.

Undergraduate students who entered WKU during the 2004 fall semester and thereafter were given a freshman pin when they attended their Freshman Assembly.
