Undergraduate Graduation Information

When should I apply for graduation?

It is recommended that you apply to graduate at least two quarters in advance of your planned graduation date. The University of Washington has a special registration category, Graduating Senior Priority (GSP), which allows seniors whose graduation applications are already on file to register on the first day of the registration period for two quarters. 

 

The latest that students can apply to graduate for a specific quarter is the third Friday of the quarter in which they plan to graduate.

This year the Chemistry Department has decided to have to two "Commencement" speeches given by two graduating students at our celebration.  We plan on selecting one biochemistry major and one chemistry major to each give brief (around 5 minutes) commencement speeches.  If you are interested in being considered for one of the speakers, please send a one page abstract of what your speech will entail to stone@chem.washington.edu, by Friday, April 25. A committee will review the abstracts and then contact selected students who will be invited to present their speech before the committee. Students will be notified by mid-May of the Committee's decision.

 

Congratulations Graduates!
