Check in and receive your name card. Students may make phonetic markings on their cards (for our announcers).

If you are an undergraduate receiving University Honors (cum laude, magna cum laude or summa cum laude), you will receive your UW Oshkosh honor cord at registration. If you are an undergraduate receiving College Honors, those cords will also be given to you at registration. There is no cost for these honor cords.

If you are a graduate student, a brief meeting will take place thirty minutes prior to the ceremony. This meeting will prepare you with the details regarding how you will be hooded on stage. If you are a master's degree candidate, this briefing will take place in Kolf 161. If you are a doctoral candidate, this briefing will take place in the Hall of Fame.

Student marshals (in blue robes) will be on hand to answer questions.

Line up with a partner (you may choose a partner, within your college, to walk with in the processional and sit with during the ceremony). If you do not have a partner, our ushers will help you find a partner to walk alongside during the processional.

The commencement staff will lead you into the upper gym at the appropriate time where a formal processional will take place. You will be ushered to your appropriate seat.

Our staff will guide you to the stage at the appropriate time to receive your degree. A photo will be taken of you as you enter the stage, as you receive the diploma cover and after you receive the diploma cover.

The ceremony will last approximately 2 hours.

A recessional will take place at the end of the ceremony and students will be led to the lower level of Kolf. Please plan to meet your guests in the lower level of Kolf after the ceremony.

An informal reception with cookies and punch as well as a photo area will take place in the lower level of Kolf immediately following the ceremony.
