On behalf of the LWTech community, congratulations on your significant academic accomplishment! You are now entering a new phase of your academic career and we hope to celebrate your accomplishment. Please use this information here, and on the right hand navigation, to learn how you and your guests may attend the ceremony.
All graduates will be required to register to attend the ceremony.
As of May 2, 2022, LWTech is no longer requiring all guests be vaccinated.
Masks are not required, but are encouraged.
The ceremony is open to graduates from 2020 and 2021. Students receiving a certificate or degree, listed below, may also attend the ceremony.
If a student is completing a degree in Fall Quarter 2022, they are not eligible to participate. Instead will be eligible to participate in the 2023 Commencement ceremony.
Students may attend the ceremony as an audience member and are not required to be in the ceremony, if they choose.
Student regalia is a tradition for all commencement ceremonies and shows you have completed a great educational milestone. All graduates intending to be in the ceremony must wear a cap, unaltered gown, and tassel.
Students receiving a applied bachelors degree will wear black gowns.
Students receiving an associates degree or a certificate will wear blue gowns.
Students are able to wear additional accouterments, especially if important to their identity. We ask that any additional accoutrement worn does not block to view of the person sitting behind you. Students are also able to wear additional cords, pins, or appropriately celebratory accouterments provided by their academic programs.
Academic honors are a symbol of academic achievement at LWTech. An honor cord is a token consisting of twisted cords with tassels on either end, awarded to our students meeting the following LWTech established eligibility requirements:
