To graduate with a BSEE degree, you must complete all BSEE degree requirements. You can apply for graduation up to two quarters in advance of your anticipated graduation date. Doing so will give you Graduating Senior Priority (GSP) status for your last two quarters of registration. The absolute deadline to apply for graduation is no later than the end of the third week of the quarter in which you plan to graduate.

Steps to graduate:

  1. Complete an application for graduation:
    1. All students planning to graduate must set up an advising appointment to complete your graduation application.
    2. The deadline to apply for Spring 2016 graduation is April 15th and the deadline to apply for Summer 2016 graduation is July 8th.
    3. For more information please see the 2015-2016 Academic Calendar
  2. Complete the Alumni Information Form.
    1. Please fill in all the blanks completely, as this information is used for accreditation, statistics and to help graduates stay in touch.
    2. We protect your privacy: This information is not shared with people/agencies outside the UW, and you will not be contacted for UW events unless you select to do so.
  3. Register for graduation/commencement events: each year, EE holds a Departmental Graduation Ceremony in addition to the UW Commencement.
    1. If you plan to attend either event, you must register and reserve or purchase tickets (see links below).
    2. A limited number of tickets are available; for the EE Graduation Celebration, we will distribute a maximum of 3 tickets to each BSEE and MSEE graduate, and a maximum of 10 tickets for each EE PhD graduate.
    3. Guests will not be admitted without a ticket.
