2016 Commencement at UW-Casper


January 25, 2017

UW-Casper commencement ceremonies will be held on Thursday, May 11, 4 p.m., at the Casper Events Center.

All UW-Casper degree candidates for December 2016, May 2017, or August 2017 are eligible to participate in these ceremonies. If you are an Outreach School candidate, and you live in the Casper area, then you are also welcome to participate in UW-Casper’s commencement.

How to order your cap and gown

  • Jostens accepts online orders for cap and gown rentals.
    • January 30 online ordering begins.
    • March 26 is the last day to order. The website will close at midnight. A $20.00 late fee will be added to your order past this date, and Jostens cannot guarantee that your gown will arrive in time for commencement.
  • To order your commencement regalia, go to
    • Click on “Graduation Caps and Gowns.” Make sure you are on the UW-Casper webpage before you place your order.

All items below will be charged WY sales tax of 5%

  • Souvenir stole: $17.00
  • Extra souvenir tassel: $7.00

Caps and gowns should arrive around May 5. We will notify you via your UW email account when they arrive.

File your Anticipated Graduation Date form with the Registrar, or at the UW-Casper Student Services Office.

This form must be mailed or faxed to the UW Registrar’s office. Find the form at

Pay your $25.00 diploma fee to the University at

The diploma fee must be paid no later than May 11, 2017 in order to avoid a late fee and a transcript hold.

Master's degree candidates must adhere to all deadlines specified by the Registrar’s Office.

Information about professional photos taken during commencement will come in future announcements via email and letter.

If you intend to participate only in the Laramie campus ceremonies, follow the instructions you have received in the memorandum from the UW Office of the Registrar outlining the procedures for Laramie campus students to
order caps and gowns, and to pay diploma fees.

If you intend to participate in both UW-Casper and Laramie campus ceremonies, order your regalia through Jostens’s UW-Casper website and take your regalia to Laramie with you for commencement. After Laramie campus
ceremonies, return the gown to the UW-Casper Student Services Office in order to receive proper credit. Be sure to notify the UW-Casper Student Services Office at (307) 268-2713 about your plans.

If you do not plan to participate in the UW-Casper ceremonies, please call the UW-Casper Student Services Office at (307) 268-2713.

Congratulations, and we hope you plan to celebrate your graduation with us here in Casper!
