Commencement Update

The LCU graduation ceremonies scheduled for December 12, 2020 have been rescheduled to accompany the scheduled ceremonies on May 8, 2021. Registration for this event is required.

Because of the need to social distance and comply with city and state requirements, each graduate will receive five guests' tickets. The graduate will not need a ticket and will be admitted with their cap and gown. The undergraduates' escorts will be admitted with their white escort gowns (master's graduates do not have escorts). Tickets will be mailed using the address on the RSVP sign-up. Masks are required at this event.
