Important Update on Commencement Photos: Updated 6.12.2022

Individual student digital photos have been sent to each students WPI e-mail account from Island Photography.  As a reminder, each student receives two digital photos compliments of WPI. One photo was taken as you received your diploma from the President, and the second photo was associated with the green screen that was on Stage Right.

Class of 2022 Commencement

WPI’s Commencement Ceremony dates back to 1871 when the university sent the 16 young men of its very first graduating class out into the world. WPI celebrates the completion of graduate and undergraduate degree requirements with two separate graduation ceremonies.

Across two ceremonies on May 12 and May 14, more than 1,000 graduate and undergraduate students will take their final walk as students over Earle Bridge to receive their bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree.

PLEASE NOTE:  WPI is pleased to offer to each student two digital photos taken by a professional photographer. There is no cost to you for these downloadable photos which will come from our contracted company.
