Graduation Procedures

Application for Graduation

Once you have completed 90 credits and are certified in your major, you can apply for graduation in myWSU. The graduation date is something that you determine—you may elect to graduate at the end of fall, spring, or summer semester.

How to Apply

  • From your myWSU Student Homepage, select Academic Advising.
  • Select Apply to Graduate from the left menu. Note: If you’re unable to proceed after this step, you may be short of earning 90 credits, or not yet certified. Please contact your academic advisor for more information.

Reviewing Your Degree Requirements

When you complete the graduation application, an audit of your degree is initiated using your Academic Progress report in myWSU. After applying for graduation, you can run an Academic Progress report at any time to monitor your progress.

To Access Your Academic Progress Report

  • From your myWSU Student Homepage, select Academic Advising.
  • Select Academic Progress from the left menu.

Carefully review your Academic Progress report. As changes to your WSU academic record occur, they will be recorded on the University transcript system and your Academic Progress report should reflect those changes. If you see any discrepancies or have any questions, contact your academic advisor.

During your last semester, you should be enrolled in the courses your Academic Progress report indicates you still need. If your Academic Progress report lists a course you need that you are not enrolled in, or if you see any discrepancies, contact your academic advisor immediately.

If you find that you need more time to complete your degree, changing your date of graduation is no problem! You may change your graduation date online through the WSU Graduations Office.

Commencement Activities

Commencement ceremonies are held at the end of spring and fall semesters. Commencement is an exciting time—we strongly encourage you to make plans to visit Pullman to join the festivities. It is an experience that many students say they’ll never forget. If you do plan on attending, be sure to book hotel accommodations early. Hotel rooms book up fast in Pullman—often up to a year in advance.
