RSVP by March 20 for special in-person graduation recognition ceremony

UWM is holding a special in-person recognition ceremony in April for any students who graduated virtually in May 2020, December 2020 or May 2021.

Graduates will have a chance to hear their names read and walk across the stage at noon on Sunday, April 10, at the UWM Panther Arena, 400 W. Kilbourn Ave. Doors open at 10:30 a.m.

The event will include most aspects of a regular commencement ceremony, with a couple of differences. To make the ceremony inclusive and accessible, regalia is optional, and degrees won’t be conferred because virtual graduates already received them. But grads are encouraged to bring their diplomas for a photo opportunity.

Graduates can RSVP at this link by March 20 for a Ticketmaster link to download up to four guest tickets.

For students interested in ordering optional regalia, the deadline to order is March 10, through Herff Jones.
