Graduation Ceremonies

In addition to the official UW Commencement ceremony held in Husky Stadium, the History Department holds its own Convocation ceremony. Students are encouraged to attend one or both of these ceremonies. Students generally find that the History Department's ceremony is more personal that the official ceremony; your name will be read at our ceremony, and History department faculty will be in attendance.

The History Department Convocation Ceremony is usually held on the Friday before UW Commencement. In 2007, this will be June 8. There will be a reception immediately following the ceremony. Please note that all information about Convocation is tentative.

Please note: Participation in the History Department Convocation is by invitation only and requires that you RSVP to us directly. Even if you have already visited the UW's Commencement website, you must still RSVP to our event as directed on the invitation.

Guest Tickets
Tickets are not required for guests attending the History Department Convocation. When you RSVP you will be asked to indicate the number of guests attending the event. There is no limit on the number of guests you may bring.

Graduates should wear "business casual" attire. Caps and gowns are not worn at this ceremony.

There will be an outdoor reception immediately following the Convocation. You and your guests are invited to join us for light refreshments, compliments of the Department.

Registration & Late Seating
The ceremony will begin promptly at 1:00 pm. All graduates must be present and seated by 12:45. Graduates arriving after this time will be seated on a space available basis. Guests arriving after 12:55 may be asked to sit in the balcony.

If you or your guests wish to park on the UW campus during Convocation, you need to purchase a parking permit in advance through the Commencement web site when it comes on-line in May.
