Commencement

Loyola University Chicago plans to hold our Commencement ceremonies between Saturday, August 8 and Wednesday, August 12, 快三预测 on Loyola's Lake Shore Campus.

Our preliminary plans for Commencement in August are based on favorable COVID-19 conditions.

All degrees will still be conferred in May or June, and diplomas will be mailed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Student Can I get a refund on my cap and gown? (04/06/20)
