Congratulations on your upcoming
graduation from UW Oshkosh!

Celebrate the significant academic achievements of our graduates, each spring and fall we host commencement. These ceremonies, steeped in tradition dating back hundreds of years, are formal events complete with pomp and circumstance.

At UW Oshkosh, we celebrate commencement in May (9 a.m. and 2 p.m.) and December (9:30 a.m.). While the ceremonies are not mandatory, candidates for graduation are encouraged to attend commencement. Graduates may invite up to five guests and tickets are not required (unless guests require special seating accommodations outside the bleacher area).

Students who apply for graduation and have successfully completed their academic requirements are automatically able to participate in the ceremony if they choose to do so.

This website contains all of the information graduates need to know to prepare for Commencement and make it a memorable event. Please browse these pages and share the details with family and friends.
