  • Students report to Harrington Auditorium in regalia as follows: Graduate Students - Thursday from 3:30 – 4:30. Undergraduate Students - Saturday from 8:30 – 9:30.

  • If you are late for line-up, we are not able to insert you into your designated order, and you will positioned at the very end of the degree candidates.
  • Step off for the Processional is at approximately 4:30 pm (Thursday) or 9:30 am (Saturday).
  • Dress for the weather -- if raining, you may bring an umbrella if it fits under your seat. Remember, we are seated under the commencement tent. 

All students must wear WPI regalia, and staff will place each student in alpha order. Ticketed guests should report directly to the Quad to have their ticket scanned and be seated. Guests without tickets may watch the live-stream in the Rubin Campus Center, Higgins Labs 116 & 218, the Innovation Studio, or Olin 107. Guests are asked to not congregate outside of the tent, due to noise intruding upon the ceremony.
