The William E. Boeing Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics is looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2024!

On Thursday, June 6, 2024 (5:00 pm Pacific Time), the Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics will celebrate the class of 2024 at Kane Hall 130 here on the UW campus. We will livestream the event and post a video afterward on our YouTube channel for friends and family who can not attend.

4:45 pm - Be There, Be Dressed.
Arrive in your cap and gown. Your guests may start to find their seats.

Graduation tickets will be released in late May after students complete exit surveys. 

We will have a livestream of the ceremony (link will be released later) with the recording posted on YouTube after the event.

Arrival & Check-In

  • Participating students do not need a ticket (only guests need tickets).
  • Students will be directed to check in upon arrival to receive your name card and line-up order.
  • Leave backpacks and bags in the car.
  • Students are expected to wear business casual attire under their gowns.
  • Graduates will walk across the stage, which includes a few stairs up and down. Choose shoes according to your comfort and confidence.

In the ticketing process, you can indicate if you or your guests need accessible accommodations.
