Conferral of Degrees

Degrees are conferred three times each year following the end of each term in August, January, and May. Commencement Ceremonies take place once a year in May. All students who have completed degree requirements during the previous year (June through May) may participate in the May Commencement Ceremonies.

Please refer to your Undergraduate or Graduate Catalog for graduation requirements specific to your major/program. Any student wishing to graduate should contact their Dean’s/Program Director’s Office to discuss the completion of their requirements. All students must apply to graduate in order to receive their degree.

Commencement Ceremony

La Salle University has one Commencement ceremony each year in May. All students who have completed degree requirements during the previous year (June through May) can participate in the May Commencement ceremonies. All students who graduate in the previous August, or January, or who plan to graduate in May will receive on-going communications from University Events. These communications will include information on all Baccalaureate and Commencement Ceremony activities. If you have questions regarding Baccalaureate or Commencement Ceremony questions you may visit La Salle’s Commencement web site or send an e-mail to commencement@lasalle.edu, or call 215-951-1900.

Diploma Distribution

The Registrar’s Office will mail diplomas approximately 4-6 weeks from the date of graduation.  Please make sure that your mailing address is updated by following the steps below:

Diplomas will be mailed via UPS; therefore, you must provide a physical mailing address as they cannot deliver to PO Boxes.

Note:  Outstanding financial obligations to the University may prohibit the release of your diploma.
