Graduation & Commencement

  • Though the Office of the Registrar plays an important role in the Commencement Ceremony, for specific information, such as dates, times, etc., on undergraduate and graduate commencement, please refer to the Seattle University Commencement webpage. There you can find information on the President’s Commencement Brunch, Baccalaureate Mass, the Undergraduate and Graduate commencement ceremonies and more. 

    Graduation is the term used to identify when a student has completed and earned their degree from Seattle University.

    Commencement is the symbolic ceremony where the university community gathers to celebrate, with family and friends, the student's accomplishments. However degrees are not actually awarded here and attending commencement does not mean a student has graduated.
