The commencement ceremony will be held on Taylor Field Saturday, May 12, 2018, beginning at 11:00 a.m.  The ceremony will run for approximately 2.5 hours. Graduates participating in commencement must check-in that morning no later than 9:30 A.M.

Specific details on where graduates need to report to line up will be communicated via email to students in the weeks immediately preceding the ceremony.

There is no limit to the number of people each graduate student may bring to commencement, and tickets are not required.  Seating is on a first-come first-served basis. 

You should plan to attend the entire ceremony. Graduate students sit in the front of the tent, right before the dais where the Lasell President, invited speakers, faculty and staff are seated. Graduate student diplomas are awarded first followed by undergraduates. In respect to the entire Lasell community, students are asked to remain in their seats until the final diplomas are awarded and the recessional begins.
