Spring 2021 Commencement

Saturday, May 15, 2021

Kolf Sports Center | 785 High Ave, Oshkosh, WI 54901

As Chancellor Leavitt announced, UW Oshkosh will be offering graduates and their families in-person commencement ceremonies for the 2021 graduates and two guests each. The ceremonies will take place in Kolf Sports Center.

The ceremonies will also be live streamed for those who choose that option or for other family members and friends to watch. While we are excited to offer a safe and in-person option, we want everyone to choose the option that most meets their comfort level.

Face coverings and physical distancing will be required and other COVID-19 precautions will be followed. Please know we need to remain flexible as plans can change based on the spread of COVID-19.

All graduates must RSVP for their ceremony in order to attend by Thursday, April 15.
