Commencement


Beginning in 2006, a single commencement ceremony, honoring candidates for degrees of the respective professional schools of the LSU Health Sciences Center, will be held each academic year. Payment of all financial indebtedness to the LSU System prior to commencement, as well as attendance at commencement, unless excused in writing, by the student’s Dean, is degree requirements. The schedule of graduation ceremonies through 2020 is as follows:

  • Thursday, May 18, 2017 10:00 am
  • Thursday, May 17, 2018 10:00 am
  • Thursday, May 16, 2019 10:00 am
  • Thursday, May 14, 2020 10:00 am

Students completing academic requirements during a term in which a commencement ceremony is not held will have their degrees conferred at the end of the academic term. Conferral dates will generally be on the second Saturday in August and the second Thursday in December. Degrees in post-graduate dental education will be conferred on the last day of June. The schedule of conferral dates through 2019 is as follows:

  • Friday, June 30, 2017
