Message from the Chancellor Regarding Commencement 

Regretfully, we are unable to hold an in-person commencement ceremony this fall. Instead, we will offer a virtual commencement ceremony for our 2020 fall graduates on Saturday, December 19 at 10:00 a.m. While this news is likely not surprising to most of you, we know it is a disappointment and we remain committed, when we are able to resume in-person ceremonies, to offer the option to any 2020 spring or fall graduate the opportunity to walk in an in person ceremony. Students expected to graduate this fall will receive an e-mail in the next few weeks with information related to the virtual commencement.

UW-Stout COVID Update

COVID Student FAQs

Q: Are there any plans for us to pivot to fully online after Thanksgiving or to eliminate spring break this year?

A:  At this time, no calendar or modality changes are being planned for either the fall or spring semester at UW-Stout. However, we continue to monitor the situation daily and will respond as needed in consultation with public health and UW System administration.

Q: Why do test results look lower lately?

A: There are two primary reasons why test results look lower.  First, students who have tested positive or are in isolation or quarantine are removed from the pool of potential testers; quite simply, there are fewer people required to test.  Second, now that the initial transition to fall semester has passed, students have settled into a routine of knowing and understanding expectations for reducing the potential transmission of COVID-19 and are generally adhering to the guidelines established for our community. Like the seasonal flu, we expect that there will continue to be fluctuations in the testing results.  The best way to maintain the lower numbers is for all members of our community to wear a mask, social distance, and practice good personal hygiene.  We deeply appreciate and are proud of the efforts of our students and university community to adhere to institutional expectations and model safe and healthy behavior both on and off campus.

Q: What is the difference between the two types of COVID-19 testing and what happens if I need to go into quarantine or isolation?

A: An excellent resource for these questions can be found by visiting this site, which can also be accessed via the Housing COVID-19 site.
