Graduation | Commencement

UW Oshkosh hosts two commencement ceremonies each year; one in December for midyear graduates and another in May for spring graduates. As midyear ceremonies are not held on the Fond du Lac and Fox Cities access campuses, we are inviting students from those campuses who graduated in summer or will graduate this winter to participate in the December ceremony on the Oshkosh campus.

The first step is to apply for graduation. Your graduation examiner will inform you of your eligibility for graduation once you’ve applied. 

The UW Oshkosh Commencement Office will be communicating with you throughout the semester pertaining to midyear commencement. Watch for our emails to receive timely information and updates. For full details, refer to our commencement website
