WVU Releases December Commencement Information

West Virginia University has released the 2017 December Commencement schedule. August and December graduates will celebrate their achievements at the WVU Coliseum on December 15, 2017 with two separate ceremonies. Graduates from the Eberly College of Arts & Sciences and from the College of Business & Economics will walk in a ceremony at 9 a.m. Graduates of all other schools and colleges will walk in a ceremony at 2 p.m.

As a reminder, the deadline to apply for Fall 2017 graduation through the Office of the University Registrar is October 6, 2017. Graduates planning to participate in December Commencement must register to walk in the appropriate ceremony by December 8 using the link available soon on the Graduation website. This is in addition to applying for graduation.

The University reminds graduates that participation in Commencement exercises does not signify the completion of a WVU degree. Diplomas will be mailed after all grades are finalized and certified by the OUR.

If you have questions about the upcoming December graduation ceremonies, please contact WVU’s Office of University Events at or 304-293-7132. Updates are available on the WVU Graduation website as information is confirmed.
