A Message From Dr. Hart

Dear Graduates and Friends of Loma Linda University,

On behalf of Loma Linda University, we would like to invite you and your family to join us in congratulating the graduating class of 2021. We are planning on celebrating our graduates during the weekends of May 28-30, and June 11-13, 2021, in what will be our 115th commencement.

At this time, we do not have the ability to know what the commencement events will entail or even look like, or how they may need to be adjusted in terms of programming, timing, and attendance, but we want to assure you that we are prepared to recognize and celebrate our graduates in the best way possible.

As a healthcare sciences institution, we place the highest importance on the welfare and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as our community at-large, and we are proceeding with this in mind.

Please be advised that current published schedules and venues may change as we get closer, if circumstances warrant it. We will communicate in a timely manner as things evolve, and will post additional updates as they become available.

While we are hopeful at this time, we remain cautious, not knowing what the outlook will be going into Spring of 2021. We continue to monitor CDC, State and local guidelines and restrictions on an ongoing basis, and are prepared to adjust accordingly.
