Make the most out of what the Winona and Rochester campus has to offer while pursuing your education. Winona State is truly an outstanding place to live and work.

Important Dates/Deadlines

2020 Spring Commencement

COVID-19 Alert

On March 14, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommended restricting the size of gatherings. Due to this reason, Spring Commencement will not be held as scheduled. This includes the official ceremonies along with all related Commencement activities.

WSU is firmly committed to celebrating the Class of 2020 and their achievements at a later date.

However, we don't know when that date will be at this time and it will depend on new information as the COVID-19 situation unfolds.

We will continue to evaluate information as we receive it and communicate a decision with our community as soon as we are able.
