Fall commencement for graduating students will be on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Lindenwood’s Hyland Arena.

Students graduating from the College of Education and Human Services and the College of Science, Technology, and Health will have their ceremony at 10 a.m.

Students graduating from the Plaster College of Business and Entrepreneurship and the College of Arts and Humanities will graduate at 3 p.m.

Registrar Christine Hannar said via email that students should arrive at least one hour prior to the start of their ceremony. Students should enter through the Evans Commons entrance and go to the student check-in area.

Hannar said the check-in area is where students can receive their honors cords for earning Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Summa Cum Laude. Students can also receive veterans honors cords here.

Doors will open for guests 90 minutes before the start of the ceremony. Hannar said guests with tickets should enter through the Hyland Performance Arena entrance.

All degree levels will be awarded from the highest level in descending order. This means that doctoral degrees will be given first, followed by master’s degrees, and then bachelor’s degrees.

All ceremonies will be live-streamed here on the Lindenwood website.
