Preparing for Graduation
Complete the Graduation application
First off, congratulations on entering the last stage of your college career! In order to graduate, all students need to file a graduation application through CWU's Safari (Wildcat Connection > Safari > Self Services > Graduation > Graduation Application). You can find the deadline for graduation application in the Academic Calendar in the Registration Handbook on the CWU website. It is highly recommended that you finish this application one quarter prior to the quarter you wish to graduate in (i.e. If you are graduating Spring quarter, you will need to have your application submitted the first few weeks of Winter quarter). This ensures that any and all gaps in credits are addressed prior to graduation.
Complete your Grad Package
If you plan on walking in graduation, you will need to purchase regalia that have been approved by CWU - the Wildcat Shop is your go-to resource for all the regalia you need and more! Each Spring, prior to graduation, the Wildcat Shop offers online and in store purchasing of regalia, diploma frames, and Alumni gear for your special day. During this time, you can get package deals on your regalia as well as your diploma frames, and free things!
When Walking Registration opens (usually around the beginning of April), be sure to register to get a ten digit and letter code. This code proves that you are indeed registered to walk and allows you to purchase your regalia. Without this code, you cannot purchase regalia!
