Commencement Attire

University commencement ceremonies are steeped in traditions that date back to the middle ages. Each piece of the academic regalia represents a piece of the history of academia. Graduates, faculty and staff all wear academic regalia specific to their degree and discipline during the ceremony. UW Oshkosh follows the ACE academic costume guide in determining this regalia.

Please note that the gold year on your your tassel will reflect the date of your graduation from UW Oshkosh (not the date of the commencement commencement ceremony.
