Below is a guide to the winter and spring ceremonies that will recognize you for your academic accomplishments. This page is updated as information becomes available, so check back for updates.
LAS hosts a collegewide ceremony in December to recognize students earning a bachelor's or master's degree in August or December of that year. Students have the option of participating in the LAS Winter Convocation ceremony or in the university-wide commencement and LAS departmental ceremonies held in May. There is no university-wide commencement ceremony in December.
Congratulations on your graduation! Although we cannot celebrate in person at this time, our pride in you and your accomplishments knows no bounds. The LAS community is thinking about and celebrating you from afar.
Please join us for a virtual celebration. You may view the event on demand with your family and friends or at your convenience. Hear from Dean Gene Robinson and a distinguished alumna, enjoy student memories and a performance by the Marching Illini, and see your name listed as a member of the graduating class.
