Commencement Ceremony

Celebrating Student Success

The 2018 Commencement ceremony will be at the Kent ShoWare Center on Friday, June 15.

  • Graduates may begin checking in at 5:30 p.m. at the north entrance (loading dock area), but must be present by 6:00 p.m.
  • Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for guests
  • Ceremony will start promptly at 7:00 p.m.

Kent ShoWare Center's large, indoor venue offers enough seating for guests so tickets are not required for family and guests. Seating is fairly close to the floor and sight lines are great.

An email will be sent to graduates who have indicated their intent to participate in the commencement ceremony by the week of May 8. The email will be sent to the student's Green River email account.

If you have any questions, please e-mail us at: or call the commencement hotline at: 253-833-9111, ext. 4740.
