UW-Waukesha Has Record-Setting Graduating Class

5/22/14
By UW-Waukesha

WAUKESHA – The University of Wisconsin-Waukeshaawarded 149 associate degrees at its spring Honors & Degree ceremony May 22.

It marked the largest graduating class in school history. The previous high, 136, was set in spring 2012.

Over the course of the summer, fall, winter and spring terms, UW-Waukesha conferred 247 associate degrees, setting another record for the university; the previous high was 219 graduates in 2012.

Dean/CEO Harry Muir said UW-Waukesha aims to provide higher education access to all students who wish to improve their chances for success.

“For many students, this means completing their coursework and moving on before finishing the requirements for an associate degree,” he said. “But for an increasing number of students, it means completing their first two years of study at UW-Waukesha, attaining their associate degree and then moving on to another member of the University of Wisconsin System that offers the bachelor’s degree of their choice. 

“We are proud that this year’s graduation class is the largest ever in our 48-year history. And, as we look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2016, we hope that by offering students the new bachelor of applied arts and science degree program we continue to see more students complete their four-year degree programs as well.”

UW-Waukesha Professor of English Emerita Margaret “Peggy” Rozga gave the commencement address.

Students must earn at least 60 college credits in five different areas and maintain a cumulative 2.0 grade point average (on a scale of 4.0) to qualify for a degree.          

Degrees were awarded to the following students:
