Families & guests

Given the state of the public health situation, UWL will host Commencement events for Class of 2021 graduates in person, but families and guests will attend virtually.
Why no spectators?
  • UWL wants to celebrate our graduates safely and joyfully. 
  • CDC guidelines continue to limit the size of events in order to reduce viral spread.
  • Decisions about commencement need to be made in March 2021 to secure spaces and logistics.
  • UWL and many other universities are holding commencements in this manner to best accommodate the many competing needs.
  • The decision will not change even with increased vaccination rates.

Commencement ceremonies will be live streamed and available for viewing on the day of the event.
