It is the UW-Platteville Commencement Committee's policy that any students who have participated on an approved education abroad program of any length in time (short-term faculty-led, summer, semester, academic year, calendar year, winterim) are eligible to wear an education abroad sash at commencement.
Education abroad sashes are an optional piece of graduation attire to be worn over the graduation gown. These eye-catching sashes display the colors of the flag, some with national emblems, of the country in which the student studied abroad. Each sash is made of highest quality satin and lined, making each one a lasting memory of your education abroad experience(s) at UW-Platteville.
Sashes can be ordered along with caps and gowns at UW-Platteville Countdown to Commencement. Please contact the UW-Platteville Bookstore for more information on ordering a sash and for current prices.
Non-Platteville students are encouraged to contact their home institutions education abroad office for information on how they can display their education abroad pride at commencement.
