Commencement Ceremony



CLASS of 2017

NOTE: New time this year!


2017 Graduation Ceremony is Friday, May 26, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.


Calling all graduating students!
Apply to be the 2017 Graduation Student Speaker!
Did you complete graduation requirements in Summer 2016, Fall 2016 or did you apply to graduate for Spring 2017?


If you answered yes, you can apply to be a Student Speaker at the 2017 Graduation Ceremony. We are currently seeking applications for graduating students to give a brief 3 minute speech at graduation. This is your opportunity to share your "pearls of wisdom", "words of encouragement", or “advice for the future” with your graduating classmates. Just fill out the application to be a speaker and submit it by April 26. All applications will be reviewed by the Graduation Committee, and you will be notified if you have been selected to present your speech.


Applications received from students who applied for graduation in Spring 2017 will be subject to verification of graduation eligibility by Admissions and Records.


It's not too late to leave your mark (or remarks) on the Class of 2017! Submit your application today!


Please check back here frequently. As we receive new information, this webpage will be updated with the most current commencement ceremony information.


Ceremony Information

This year's graduation ceremony will be held on May 26, 2017 at the LMC Football Stadium.

Because graduation is held in the football stadium, there is no limit to the number of guests you may invite. There is no reserved seating at the stadium. The stadium bleachers have wheelchair access; chairs will also be placed below the bleachers for additional seating and accessibility.

Please Note: To provide a safe experience for faculty, staff, and students no high heeled shoes or chewing gum will be allowed in the stadium. If you wear high heeled shoes, you will be required to remove your shoes as they will damage the track and field. If this occurs, you will be graduating in bare feet!


Notification of Graduation Status

Students who applied for Spring 2017 graduation will receive letters. Each degree will receive a separate email. Please check your InSite email account for your letter.


Who is Invited to Participate in Commencement

Students who completed degrees and certificates in Summer 2016, Fall 2016 or if your Spring 2017 application is approved or pending, you will be invited to participate in the 2017 Commencement Ceremony. Students who have applied for Spring 2017 graduation will receive notification to their InSite email account.
