We recognize the importance that graduation holds for our students and their families. We are also aware of the enormous sense of pride that accompanies such a significant accomplishment.  The faculty and staff at UW Oshkosh look forward to celebrating with you at the Midyear 2019 Commencement ceremony.

Tickets and Duration

No tickets are required to attend Commencement but due to building capacity, we ask that graduates keep their guest limit to four people. The Midyear Commencement ceremony is expected to last between two and two and one half hours.


  • The doors to Kolf open two hours prior to the ceremony.
  • Seating is available on a first-come, first served basis in the bleachers.
  • A limited number of spaces are available for wheelchairs and guests who are unable to climb or sit in the bleachers. A number of chairs can also be reserved for guests who would benefit from the services of our hearing impaired interpreter. Please see the special seating and disability parking page via Eventbrite for details.
  • Parking permits are not required in University lots on commencement day except a section of lot 13 (reserved for guests with disabilities) and stalls which are marked as handicapped or reserved for specific individuals.
  • Live video will be broadcast in Kolf Sports Center, room 161 (lower level) fifteen minutes after the ceremony begins for families with small children. Take a break and let the children move around in our relaxed remote viewing area.
  • The ceremony will also be streamed live online.

We look forward to celebrating with you in December!
