Huxley’s Celebration is NOT the Same as Western’s Graduation

The annual Huxley College graduation celebration is unrelated to Western’s official Spring Commencement held on the same day. However, many of Huxley’s spring quarter graduates attend both events. Those students eligible to participate in Western’s commencement will receive official notification from the WWU Registrar.  You can find more information about Western's cap and gown ceremony here.

Congratulations! We look forward to seeing you at graduation...
