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!





In partnership with Lookieview Productions, the LMC Graduation ceremony will be live-streamed here on the Graduation website. Additionally, copies of the video will be available for purchase after the ceremony.

Live stream by Lookieview Productions will be Available on Graduation day



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.



Due to construction related to the PE/Athletics and Student Union facilities projects, a portion of the campus adjacent to the Stadium will be closed on Graduation day.


Only the main Stadium entrance adjacent to Parking Lot B will be open for the public during the event.


The public will not be able to access the Stadium from the sidewalk next to the Tennis Courts, the sidewalk between the Baseball and Softball fields or from the sidewalk between the Gym and Practice Field.



Graduates Access to the Softball Field

Graduates should access the assembly area on the Softball Field through the "Graduates Only" walkway located between the Gym/Locker Rooms and the Practice Field. All other access points for the Softball field will be closed on Graduation day.


Public Access to the Stadium

Members of the public who use Parking Lot A should access the Stadium through the main quad. Those utilizing Parking Lot C should walk through the College Complex Building to the main Quad, and then to the main Stadium Entrance.


The public should not park on the section of Los Medanos Drive on the east side of campus as there will be no Stadium access from that section of the road.
