Washburn University Board of Regents with the recommendation of the faculty of Washburn Tech confers degrees at the end of the fall and spring semesters and summer session to students who have met all requirements as of the last day of final examinations for that session. All work not completed by the last day of finals will result in a graduation date of the following semester or later if a previous “incomplete” has not been finalized.
If a student is concurrently enrolled at another institution and intends to use the work to complete graduation requirements at Washburn Tech, an official transcript from the institution must be received within two weeks of Washburn Tech’s last last day of instruction date of the graduating semester in order to have the degree conferred in the same semester. Washburn Tech holds a commencement ceremony at the end of the fall and spring semesters. Students who complete requirements for a certificate or degree during fall semester will be invited to participate in the fall commencement ceremony. Students who complete requirements for a certificate or degree during the spring semester will be invited to participate in the spring commencement ceremony. Students completing required coursework in summer session will be invited to participate in fall commencement. All such candidates must have the Application for Graduation form on file.
