Congratulations to our outstanding students who are graduating this spring!

Commencement 2020 information

Dear Students, Faculty, Staff, and Guests:

It is with a very heavy heart I regret to inform you that the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will not be holding commencement, which was originally scheduled for May 7, 2020. All in-person activities for the week of commencement will be cancelled as well.

Given the situation regarding the spread of COVID-19 and current recommendations from state and county public health officials, we cannot safely hold this celebration in good conscience without impacting efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. On behalf of the leadership of WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, we felt it was important that we inform you of this decision as soon as possible so that you can adjust plans for that week.

We will endeavor to hold a celebration for our students’ accomplishments and scholarship, but with the unpredictable circumstances we face, we are unable to schedule anything for the time being.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and professionalism during these difficult times.


Linda Garrelts MacLean
Interim Dean | Clinical Professor
