BSME graduation procedures

Two BSME students at graduation

You must apply for your degree because degrees are not automatically awarded upon satisfying requirements. You should apply for graduation two quarters before you wish to graduate. To graduate in June, for example, you would need to apply by the third week of autumn quarter.

To apply for graduation, schedule an advising appointment by contacting

Graduating Senior Priority

Graduating seniors need to file a degree application two quarters prior to their expected graduation date to qualify for Graduating Senior Priority (GSP) registration. GSP registration allows you to register for your last two quarters on the first day of registration Period I.


Each June, the ME department holds a Graduation Celebration for all graduating ME students, separate from the Seattle Campus Commencement Ceremony. For information on the campus-wide Commencement, visit the Commencement website. Information on the ME Graduation Celebration is made available spring quarter via email, and the event information is posted on the ME Calendar.
