Date & Time:

Monday, June 6, 2022
6:00pm -Start time
(Doors will open at 5:00pm)


Alaska Airlines Arena

Registration Information:

The event registration deadline was midnight on May 22. If you missed the registration deadline, you are still welcome to attend the event. No tickets are required. You may still attend the event and bring guests, be seated among the graduating students on the floor area of the Alaska Airlines Arena (guests will be seated in the stands), process with the graduates, and have your name read. We have already created the event program so will not be able to add names of participants who missed the May 22 registration deadline.


Campus parking for all graduation events will require a parking permit. The Registration/Order Form is the only place graduates can order parking permits for June 1 - June 12. The form will allow graduates to purchase parking permits even if they do not intend to attend Commencement. 

UW Commencement 2022:

Visit the UW Commencement 2022 website for information regarding the Commencement Ceremonies on Saturday, June 11, 2022 (for 2022 graduates), and Sunday, June 12, 2022 (for returning graduates). There you will find information about guest tickets, eligibility, cap and gown, ordering announcements and photos, purchasing parking permits, etc. 

Event Comments:

We know that holding the graduation celebration several days before the UW Commencement Ceremony poses a challenge for families and friends of graduates who hope to attend both events. We are one of the largest departments at the UW, and the Alaska Airlines Arena is the only venue that will accommodate our graduates and their guests. When the arena was reserved, June 6 was the only available date.
