What is the difference between commencement and graduation? Commencement is a ceremony that recognizes your academic achievement. The University Commencement Committee meets regularly to ensure you and your loved ones have a meaningful experience celebrating your accomplishments at UW-Platteville.

Graduation is the awarding of an academic degree or diploma. The Office of the Registrar oversees the completion of all degree programs. If you have questions about your classes or degree requirements, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 608.342.1321 or email
