Spring/Summer 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 has canceled its on-campus spring Commencement ceremonies that had been scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2020. Additional solutions are being explored. Watch your UW-Green Bay email and check back for additional details.

Save the date! The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's Rescheduled Spring/Summer Commencement ceremony will be held at 11:30am, Saturday, August 22, 2020, in the Kress Events Center. The ceremony is approximately 2 hours in length. If you are a UW-Green Bay GB campus student & expect to earn your degree in May or August, or you are a graduating student from the Marinette, Manitowoc, or Sheboygan campus, this is the ceremony you should participate in. If you expect to earn your degree in December or January, you should participate in the fall/winter ceremony. Rare exceptions must be requested to commencement@uwgb.edu.

Early graduation application (by Friday, April 17th) is still strongly encouraged and will ensure that all graduation communications are received (graduation check, commencement info, etc.). Students may still apply for graduation after this date; however, some communications may be missed. PLEASE NOTE: Diplomas will automatically be sent to once graduation audits are completed. Please contact the Registrar’s Office with questions regarding graduation requirements.

In order to participate in the ceremony, you must sign up online by midnight on July 10, 2020. To sign-up for Commencement or Edit Commencement Information:
