The spring 2023 commencement ceremonies were held May 3, 4 and 5. Congratulations to all the graduates!

Wayne State University confers degrees for fall, winter and spring/summer terms and honors its graduates by hosting commencement ceremonies in December and May. Ceremonies are for students completing the following degrees: Ph.D., Ed.D., doctoral, master's and bachelor's.

All Ph.D./Ed.D. candidates must check with their advisor and/or dean's office in the Graduate School or the College of Education for the exact requirements that must be completed to participate in commencement ceremonies.


Graduation is so much more than a moment: It is the culmination of your time at Wayne State University, captured in memories, photos, videos and experiences. We invite you to share what this journey has meant to you by using #MyWSUStory on social media.
