Get Ready Guide

The Winston-Salem State University Commencement preparation guide is a one stop shop for what potential graduates need to do in order to be cleared for graduation and ready for commencement day. The university's faculty and staff are here to assist the students in their final steps in this phase of their "Enter Learn, Depart to Serve." path.

While this guide will be a useful resource for the face-to-face ceremony, there is still some important and relevant information for all WSSU graduates to complete prior to the end of the semester. These include the alumni registration process, senior surveys, and exit interviews for student loans. Please continue to use this guide.
