Lamar Community College's 74th annual Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, April 27th, 2013.
To make graduation activities a true celebration for all students and their families, we ask you please note the following:
Several items should be accomplished in the weeks and months before commencement.
Intent to graduate: Individuals who believe they are eligible to walk in Commencement for fall 2012 or spring/summer 2013 completion, must have an approved Intent to Graduate on file. Please see the 2012-2013 Academic Calendar for deadlines. For questions, contact the Student Services Center at 719.336.1590.
Caps & gowns: All students who submit an approved Intent to Graduate form for fall, spring or summer will be assessed a graduation fee in the appropriate semester. This includes a charge for your cap and gown, so there is no additional charge to reserve yours. Order your cap and gown through Herff Jones by March 17.
Contact LCC's Student Services Center at 719.336.1590 after March 17.
Your cap and gown will be available week of April 22nd in the Student Services Center (Betz Technology Center). Once you have received them, they will be yours to keep.
Announcements: Graduation announcements are not included in the graduation fee and are an optional expense. Order your announcements through Herff Jones by March 17. Please allow five to seven days for printing and shipping.
Late orders may be processed through our Campus Bookstore at 719.336.1621 or email@example.com.
Lodging: Book early to assure your room reservation. » download Lamar motel list.
Commencement Rehearsal: Report to the Wellness Center (upper level) on Friday, April 26 at 9:30 a OR 1:30 p for rehearsal. (These times are yet to be confirmed. Please check back in early spring 2012 for confirmation.) If you cannot make one of these rehearsal times, please contact Student Services at 719.336.1590.
Below are additional details related to the day of Commencement.
Commencement Line-up: Meet in the upper level of the Wellness Center on Saturday morning, April 27 at 9:15 a.m. for the final line-up prior to Commencement.
Parking: Primary parking will be available in the Wellness Center parking lot. Additional overflow parking will be available at the Residence Hall and other parking lots.
Seating: Any designated seating area in the Wellness Center except for reserved seats. The Wellness Center will be open at 9:00 a.m., if you wish to come early to reserve seats.
Photos: Family members may take photos from their seats.
Webcast: Friends and family members who cannot be at the event may view a live video of Commencement beginning at 9:55 a.m. MST.
Participation in commencement exercises does not necessarily mean you have graduated. Degree/certificate completion will be confirmed once all spring semester grades are received and a final degree audit is completed. A student may complete up to 12 credits in summer to graduate; your degree audit will be completed after summer session grades are submitted.
Transcripts: Transcripts that include a “graduation stamp” will be available once all grades are processed, all financial obligations are met, and a final degree audit is completed. This process takes approximately four – six weeks.
Diploma: Your diploma will be ordered and shipped to you after Commencement, depending on above process timing. Please make sure a current mailing address is on file with the Student Service Center and your student account for prompt delivery of your diploma. All financial obligations to LCC must be cleared before the diploma is mailed.
