2020 Commencement Ceremony:

Due to the continuing need to practice personal and social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, Williston State College is cancelling all commencement and honors activities scheduled for the week of May 11-15. We apologize for this unfortunate decision, but the safety of our faculty, staff, students, and visitors is first and foremost. 


The WSC Bookstore has made arrangements with our cap and gown vendor, Balfour, to coordinate returns, refunds and order cancellations.

  • For students who ordered and received gowns October 10, 2019: Balfour will be contacting you directly to arrange for the return of your cap and gown package.Once Balfour receives your package, they will issue credit.
  • For students who placed their orders after October 10, 2019Balfour will be cancelling these orders immediately as payments had not been processed as of yet.

If you need assistance or have any questions about any of the above, please contact Balfour at 1-800-683-4771 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (CST), Monday-Friday or by email at
