LSU set to hold spring commencement in person with updated guidelines

LSU Spring 2021 Commencement

UPDATE:

These events will be held indoors at various venues across campus. Masks will be required at all times. Please know that if the status of the pandemic changes, or if the state’s event guidelines change, these ceremonies could also change. At this time, here is what you can expect:

  • After reviewing the updated guidance from the State of Louisiana and our facility capacities, we have decided that tickets will not be issued for this event after all. While there will not be a ticket requirement, we ask that you limit your party to 7 or fewer individuals out of respect for your fellow graduates and their guests. Our venues have reduced capacity due to continued physical distancing protocols and limiting the size of your party will ensure that all graduates have a chance to celebrate their accomplishments with loved ones.

The following information was from LSU on March 17:

“We are pleased to announce that we will hold in-person commencement exercises this spring. Our May graduates, March graduates of the LSU Online program, and all LSU graduates from throughout 2020 will have the opportunity to walk across the stage and have their names called during the ceremonies.

Each senior college will hold a diploma ceremony for their respective graduates and will follow all state and university guidelines regarding maximum capacity restrictions, physical distancing, and mask wearing.

Ceremonies for our 2021 graduates will be held on Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8. The Vet School will hold a ceremony for DVM candidates on Monday, May 10, and the Law Center will hold a ceremony for its JD and LLM candidates on Saturday, May 15. Not all of the information below applies to the Vet and Law ceremonies, but more information on those ceremonies is forthcoming.

All 2020 graduates from last May, August and December who did not get to walk across the stage at a commencement ceremony due to the pandemic are invited to attend a separate ceremony exclusively for them on Friday, May 14.

All ceremonies will be streamed online for those unable to attend in person.

The diploma ceremonies will be held indoors at various venues across campus. Masks will be required at all times. Please know that if the status of the pandemic changes, or if the state’s event guidelines change, these ceremonies could also change.
