This year, Lakeland University will hold three outdoor, in-person Commencement ceremonies and two virtual commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 1.

Registration for the virtual ceremonies is closed. The registration deadline to participate in the in-person ceremonies has been extended to Wednesday, April 7, at 4:30 p.m.

If you have already registered for an in-person ceremony, you need to do nothing right now. Please plan on wearing your regalia (cap/gown) on May 1.

If you are now interested in being part of an in-person ceremony, the deadline to order commencement regalia (cap/gown) has passed. You are encouraged to wear business casual (Neat, clean and professional. A collared shirt and pressed pants or a skirt. Spike/high heel shoes are not permitted on the turf) on May 1. Caps and tassels will be available for sale at commencement for those who do not have regalia. The cost will be between $15-$20. If you know a 2020 Lakeland graduate, you can borrow/purchase their regalia. Please do NOT order regalia from any online source.

Each graduate who participates in a May 1 in-person commencement ceremony will be allowed to invite up to two guests to attend the ceremony. More details about the guest policy will be forthcoming.
