Penn State Wilkes-Barre typically holds Commencement ceremonies once a year on the first Saturday in May after Final Exams have finished. The ceremony will begin at 10:00 am. The ceremony is held in the Athletics and Recreation Building, and tickets are not required. Students who graduate in the Summer or Fall semesters are invited to participate in the Spring ceremony. All diplomas are mailed directly to the student's home following the ceremony.
Students must file their Intent to Graduate by using the "Apply for Graduation" link within the My Academics page in the LionPATH Student Center in the beginning of the semester in which they hope to graduate in order to be approved for the graduation list.
