Putting Student Through

The PST Program was designed to enable WSU graduates to recognize those who have helped make their graduation possible through their support - moral, financial, or otherwise; this is why we are sponsoring an opportunity to honor these special people. Each honoree who attends the program will be presented with a PST degree, pin and diploma.


There is no charge for this program since it is funded through student fees.


  • Date: Thursday, April 30, 2015
  • Time: 4 p.m.
  • Location: Shepherd Union Building, Ballrooms
There will be a special ceremony with university officials and student speakers.

To honor someone:

  • Please complete and submit the form that appears below by April 13, 2015.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to thank the individuals who have supported you through your education.

If the person you wish to honor is unable to attend the program, a diploma will still be made available for you to pick up and present to him/her. Please complete and submit the form that appears below by April 13, 2015.  Diplomas will be available for pick-up April 27, 2015 (during regular business hours), in Shepherd Union, Room 326.
