Dear Wildcats,

We regretfully announce the cancellation of the 2020 Commencement ceremonies (Ellensburg/Kent). The well-being of our Wildcat family is our top priority. We are actively working on an alternate plan to recognize the class of 2020. We will continue to share updates as information is available.

Student FAQs

Yes! Commencement is just the ceremony; it will not impact your graduation or the completion of your degree.

Yes. Your diploma cover will be mailed to you with your diploma, or mailed separately if you have already received your diploma.

We are actively working on a plan to recognize our 2020 graduates, whether that be through an in-person ceremony held at a later date or digitally. More information will be forthcoming as we continue to assess the COVID-19 situation and its impacts on our future planning. Please check back soon!

Yes.  All regalia purchases may be returned for a full refund. Email wildcatshop@cwu.edu about cancelling or returning your order.

Your grad fee goes to the processing, printing and mailing of your diploma, not to the commencement ceremonies, so this fee is not refundable.
