[Optional] Program name requests are due by May 3. If you wish to either opt out of appearing in the printed graduation program or wish to use a name in the program other than your legal name, complete registration by May 3. Requests made after this date cannot be honored. If no request is made, we will use your Student Record Name as listed in the university system. (This may not be the same as an updated preferred name.)

Step 3: Order Regalia & Parking Permits, May 1-19

Regalia & Parking Order Form

Use the 2024 UW Graduation Registration/Order Form to order regalia and parking permits for all graduation events, if you or your family plan to drive. This is also where you will order tickets and parking permits for the big UW Commencement on Saturday if you are participating in it.

Be prepared to pay online with Visa, MasterCard, or debit card. Those living in the Seattle area will pick up the items they ordered at the University Book Store, May 28 – June 1, during regular store hours.  You will select your pickup date when ordering online. Students who are no longer in the Seattle area will be directed to specific pick-up times closer to the date of the ceremony.

Allen School Open House Details

  • Open house format — come at any point during the open hours.
  • Light refreshments will be served in various locations in both buildings.
  • Regalia is not necessary for this event, though there will be several photo booths and other photo ops throughout the buildings.
  • Stole pick-up and swag sale for those who have not picked up their stoles already or had them delivered to their homes, and who want some branded merch commemorating their time at the Allen School.

Allen School Graduation Celebration Details

  • Doors open at 5:00 pm; all graduates must be on the arena floor by 5:30 pm.
  • Regalia is encouraged but not required; otherwise business casual. Just about all of the Ph.D. grads will wear regalia. (Otherwise, how else do you get "hooded"?). Usually the majority (but not all) of our undergrad and master’s graduates wear regalia. Order UW regalia via the UW Graduation Registration/Order Form May 1 – 19.
  • Parking: You can purchase a parking permit via the UW Graduation Registration/Order Form if you plan to park on campus for the Allen School event. You can purchase them at the same time as buying your regalia, etc. Parking will also be available to purchase day-of when you arrive to campus.
