You are welcome to come back to campus to participate in a future regularly-scheduled ceremony. In order to indicate your preference, please email commencement@uwec.edu to request which ceremony you intend to participate.

If you have already purchased regalia from Herff Jones online you should have received an email message from Herff Jones Cap & Gown Business System <collegecs@herffjones.com>, where they asked which address to ship your order, or an option to request a refund. For the fastest customer service, please find the email from Herff Jones in your UWEC inbox.

If you cannot find that email you can contact them at email gradmidwest@gmail.com, but please know that they are managing thousands of orders at this time and that the customer service will be slower.
