Class of 2023 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 11 and May 13, more than 1,500 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: The next Commencement message to the Class of 2023 candidates will occur on Wednesday, March 29 to their WPI e-mail address. This message (along with all other previous messages) will be posted under the Graduating Students menu to the right of this page.
WPI is pleased to offer each student a digital photo taken by a professional photographer. There is no cost to you for this downloadable photo which will come from our contracted company. This company will also take another photo that can be purchased if desired.
This page was last updated on March 25, 2023. Over the course of the Spring semester, we will continue to revise and update the information.
We know that parents and students want to get a great photo as they cross the stage. We've taken care of this; each graduate will receive two digital photos compliments of WPI. One photo will be taken as the student receives their diploma from the President, and the second photo will to the right of the stage. Individual student digital photos will be sent to each students WPI e-mail account in late may from Island Photography.
