UW-Green Bay Commencement

As a part of ongoing efforts to keep students, faculty, and staff safe while also doing its part to contain community spread of the coronavirus, the University of Wisconsin Green Bay campus leadership has made the difficult decision to push the December Commencement Ceremony to May 2021. Graduates, please continue to watch your campus email for instructions to indicate your interest for participation in Spring Commencement

PLEASE NOTE: Diplomas will automatically be sent once graduation audits are completed. Please contact the Registrar’s Office with questions regarding graduation requirements.

Early graduation application in SIS is strongly encouraged and will ensure that all graduation communications are received (graduation check, commencement info, etc.). Students may still apply for graduation after the dates below; however, some communications may be missed. There are four graduation application time spans:


  • Fall graduation application deadline (classes end in December) is May 1.
