Conferral of Degrees/Commencement/Diplomas
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.
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 a Graduate Guide in March. This Guide contains 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 email@example.com, or call 215-951-1900.
Diplomas will be available 6-8 weeks after degrees are conferred. Graduates will receive a letter, via regular mail, alerting them and offering options on obtaining their diploma:
Graduates who choose to come in person may visit the Registrar’s Office in the Lawrence Administration building Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. Picture ID will be required.
Graduates who choose to have their diploma mailed, may forward their current mailing address via their La Salle email account to firstname.lastname@example.org
Graduates who choose to have a third party pick up their diploma must provide said person with a signed note, and copy of their driver’s license, allowing them to do so. This designated person must present picture ID as well.
Please note: outstanding obligations to the University may prohibit the release of your diploma.
