LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- May 2021 graduates will not Zoom across the commencement stage, they’ll walk.  That’s the decision of LU administrators after the 2020 spring ceremonies went digital due to the ongoing pandemic. Next month’s graduation will take place in Richardson Fine Arts Center over a three-day period to combat the spread of COVID-19.

The schedule begins on Friday, May 14 with the School of Education and ends on Sunday, May 16 with the College of Arts and Sciences-Social and Behavioral Sciences. The schedule is as follows:

May 14: Noon – School of Education. 6 p.m. – School of Nursing (includes pinning ceremony).

May 15: 10 a.m. – College of Arts and Sciences, Technology, Math, and Humanities and Communication. 2 p.m. – School of Business and College of Agriculture.

May 16: 10 a.m. – College of Arts and Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Graduates will receive six armbands for their guests. Children of the ages 3 and under are not required to wear an armband to attend the ceremony. Armbands are mandatory for entry.

Graduating students will be able to pickup armband packets in Young Hall 206. Armband packets are available from Monday, May 10 to Friday, May 13 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. A student ID is required to receive a packet.

A livestream of the ceremonies will be available on the university’s website for guests that are unable to attend in-person.

Congratulations to all Blue Tiger May 2021 graduates!
