Congratulations, Lamar University Graduates!

December 2020 Commencement

We are excited to celebrate our graduates in person this semester outside at Provost Umphrey Stadium. We are looking forward to recognizing the accomplishments of the Lamar University students who have worked diligently towards their degree while demonstrating a great deal of determination, especially during this past year.

Commencement will be streamed live for those who cannot attend or if a graduate has more than the allowed guest total - with social distancing, we can only accommodate four guests per graduate and will have assigned seats.

The ceremonies will be held at the following times with graduates each attending one of these dependent upon which Commencement they signed up to attend. Please check with your graduating student to make sure and watch the correct streamed ceremony.

Friday, Dec. 11 at 3pm
Saturday, Dec. 12 at 10am
Saturday, Dec. 12 at 2pm

Keep in mind, all commencement ceremonies are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. If the forecast calls for rain or storms, all ceremonies for that day will be cancelled. LU will announce any cancellations through email to graduates, on this web page and also through social media in advance of the ceremonies.

We are so proud of our graduates and this remarkable life achievement. Many of these students were with us through Harvey, Imelda and now COVID-19. They’ve persevered. They’ve overcome. They’ve accomplished a tremendous goal despite adversity. These are courageous individuals. I wish I could congratulate each of them in person.
