Penn State Wilkes-Barre typically holds Commencement ceremonies once a year on the second or third Saturday in May, starting at 10:00 am.  The ceremony is held in the Athletics and Recreation Building, and tickets are not required.  Students who graduate in the Summer or Fall semesters are invited to participate in the Spring ceremony.  All diplomas are mailed directly to the student’s home following the ceremony.

Students must file an Intent to Graduate on eLion in the beginning of the semester in which they hope to graduate in order to be approved for the graduation list.
