Ceremony Information

This year's graduation ceremony will be held on May 27, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the LMC Football Stadium. Students should plan to arrive no later than 5:30 pm to check in and line up in the gymnasium. Students will need to check in to receive a card which will contain their name and major to be read during the ceremony. Only one major will be read at the ceremony.

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!

Students who applied for Spring 2016 graduation received letters. Each degree will receive a separate email. Please check your InSite email account for your letter. Students who applied for Summer 2016 graduation and applied to walk in the Spring ceremony will receive notification by May15th.
