Congratulations to All of Our 2020 LSU Graduates!!!

Welcome to Our LSU Families and Friends!

Join Us on Friday, December 18, 2020 for the
In-Person Commencement Ceremony of our **2020 LSU Graduates**
that will be held in LSU Tiger Stadium

Times To Be Announced at a Later Date*

There is much to celebrate and acknowledge this year from accomplishments, individual growth and overcoming unexpected life events. Despite it all, we are stronger and more prepared than ever to face the future united in the traditons of Louisiana State University. Forever LSU.

Due to the COVID-19 Guidelines, we are taking several steps to make the in-person ceremony safe and will be a contactless event. LSU Fall Commencement Ceremony details:

  • The Commencement Ceremony will take place outdoors in Tiger Stadium, rain or shine.
  • Each graduate is eligible for four tickets: one for themselves and one for each of up to three guests.
  • Attendees need to socially distance and masks will be required at all times.
  • Instead of walking across the stage, graduates will stand in place briefly while their name is read aloud and they are displayed on the video screen.
  • There will be no printed commencement program.
  • Diplomas will be mailed later to graduates instead of handed out that day.
  • Attendance by LSU faculty and staff won’t be required and instead will be kept to a minimum. There will be no faculty procession.
  • No professional photographs will be taken during the ceremony. Instead, graduates need to go online and visit Sign-up Genius to schedule a time slot for photo shoots to be done on campus during two time windows: Nov. 12-13 and Nov. 16-17.
  • LSU graduates in 2020 need to complete the LSU Fall 2020 Graduation Celebration Form by Friday, Nov. 20.

**Graduation is for our Fall, Spring and Summer of 2020 graduates that were not given the opportunity to have an in-person Commencement Ceremony due to COVID-19.

**For any 2020 Graduates that may prefer having a virtual commencement, a Virtual Commencement Celebraton will also take place.
