For those unable to attend in person, Washburn will stream the ceremonies live to allow for remote viewing. 

In addition to streaming the event for a remote audience, Washburn will make it possible for faculty to join the ceremonies virtually. In-person faculty participation will be limited to those with appointed roles within the ceremony. Additional information on attending virtually will be forthcoming.

No tickets are required.  The event is open to the public.

Parking is free on campus.  The closest lots are those surrounding Petro Allied Health Center.  Parking for persons with disabilities is located south of Petro in Lot 5.

University staff will be available to assist guests with special needs.  It is recommended that students and guests requiring assistance and/or special seating send an email to Student Services or call 785.670.1629 at least 2 weeks prior to the ceremony date.
