Information for 2021 Graduates & Families

Graduation cap decorated with UW logo and the words 'Hello World'To protect the health and safety of our graduates, their families and friends, and our faculty and staff, the Allen School’s in-person Graduation Celebration originally scheduled to take place on June 11, 2021 is canceled.

We eagerly await a time when we can gather to honor our graduates in person, once it is safe and permitted to do so and with ample notice for the purposes of planning travel. Given the current circumstances, we plan to celebrate this most special occasion for and with our 2021 graduates as follows:

Virtual Celebration of the Class of 2021

Families, friends and classmates are invited to view our online tribute to the Class of 2021 and are also welcome to post their messages to graduates on the Allen School's graduation Kudoboard.

On Friday, June 11th at 5:00 PDT, we will release our video celebration and announce the recipients of our annual school awards, which graduates, families and friends can view on the tribute site. Note that participation in the tribute is entirely voluntary, and students must have opted in to be featured on the site.

We are in awe of our graduates and how everyone has come together during the past year to overcome significant challenges and achieve this milestone. You make the Allen School proud!
