Step 3 Participate in the Commencement Ceremony

Congratulations on your academic accomplishments! LWTech is proud to offer a celebratory experience that honors all your hard work. This commencement ceremony is an opportunity to invite your friends, family and mentors to watch you walk across our stage! All students that would like to participate in the Commencement ceremony, are required to register for the ceremony. 

Note: Attending commencement does not guarantee you have graduated. Applying for your degree or certificate does NOT register you for the commencement ceremony. Students intending to complete their program in the fall, winter, spring, summer before, or summer after may participate in the commencement ceremony.
