At LCSC's commencement ceremonies, all graduating candidates are called by name, walk the stage, shake hands with college administration, and have their photo taken. Graduates wear their regalia at their respective event and will receive a diploma cover at the ceremony (official printed diplomas are mailed to students after degrees are verified, typically within 2 weeks).
Graduates may invite family and friends, but seating is first come, first seated at the Lewiston ceremony held in the LCSC Activity Center Gymnasium. CDA graduates must procure tickets for their commencement ceremony in the Schuler Performing Arts Center on the NIC campus (see ticket info below).
Graduates and their guests are expected to remain for the duration of the ceremony, which can last up to two hours or more. Please plan accordingly and maintain proper etiquette (see details below).
