University of Wisconsin–Madison


Congratulations! Your time in the Information School is ending, and your professional career is beginning!

We at the iSchool celebrate your accomplishments each spring in May at the iSchool graduation ceremony and reception that follows. Should you graduate the December prior to the May ceremony, or the following August, you are welcome to walk in the May iSchool graduation ceremony. At the iSchool ceremony, each student is invited to cross the stage to receive their credentials.
