  • If there are transfer credits or exemptions/waivers in the record, these must all be documented and approved by UW-Platteville.  It is important to verify this information with an advisor prior to submitting the “Intent to Graduate” form.
  • The UW-Platteville Registrar's Office will initiate a final evaluation of a student's credits when the "Intent to Graduate" form is submitted. This evaluation will formally review all credits taken, transferred, or substituted/waived, and detail which course work remains or has not yet been taken.
  • Commencements are held twice each year on the main campus--at the end of the fall and spring semesters. All coursework (including co-ops, internships) must be completed before a degree will be awarded, and attendance at a Commencement ceremony is permitted.  Information regarding UWP commencement can be found at:
  • Fox Valley Engineering holds a combined commencement with UW-Fox Valley each spring.  Graduates from both fall and spring semester of the academic year are invited to participate.  Representatives from the UW-Platteville Chancellor’s Office and the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science attend this ceremony to award degrees to graduating students.
