Spring 2021 Commencement

All commencement ceremonies were held the week of May 10 on the Washburn Tech campus at 5724 SW Huntoon St.

The following schedule provides a detailed listing of ceremonies by program. Students who graduated during 2020 for whom there were no ceremonies due to the Covid-19 pandemic were included in an evening ceremony on May 12.


Wichers Photography took photographs of each graduate. They are available for free download, compliments of Washburn Tech, in a special gallery. The images are organized by day and time of ceremony. You are welcome to download and print these images or use and share them on social media.


All commencement ceremonies were live-streamed and are now available on our YouTube channel. Use the links below to watch the ceremony that included your graduate.
