Participating In Commencement (Page 54)
All Students must complete all graduation requirements (credit hours and requirements) to participate in the commencement ceremony and activities. No exceptions. EWU holds one formal graduation ceremony after the Spring Semester. However, degrees are conferred in each term once the student has completed all requirements and paid fees. (Page 54)

 Graduation Honors (Page 56)

To be considered for honors at graduation, a baccalaureate candidate must have completed at least 90 credit hours of graded coursework at EWU and have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher for all graded course-work earned at EWU. Students transferring from other institutions must be required to submit all their grades. Transfer students and EWU students who have postsecondary work elsewhere must have an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher counting all EWU courses as well as transferable work attempted at other institutions. The academic distinction is conferred at graduation upon deserving students who have achieved the following cumulative GPA’s:
