As a healthcare sciences institution, we place the highest importance on the welfare and safety of our students, faculty and staff, and our community at-large.
Given the evolving public health situation associated with COVID-19, and following CDC guidelines and State mandates, the University has decided that in-person commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 22-24, and June 12-14, 2020, will not take place this year.
Knowing how important these ceremonies are to our graduates and their families, we are committed to finding the best way possible to recognize the efforts and accomplishment of our graduates, and are currently exploring a number of options. We encourage you to stay up to date with the latest commencement plans by visiting this site regularly. We will post additional updates as they become available. For more information on how our campus is responding to COVID-19 please visit llu.edu.
Dear Graduates and Friends of Loma Linda University,
On behalf of Loma Linda University, I would like to invite you and your family to attend our 114th Graduation ceremonies on the weekends of May 22-24, and June 12-14, 2020.
Our Friday evening programs and our Saturday baccalaureate services are designed for people of all faiths, as we celebrate the commitment and accomplishments of our graduates.
Baccalaureate services for graduates of the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, and Pharmacy will be held in two services on Saturday, May 23, in the Loma Linda University Church of Seventh-day Adventists. Commencement ceremonies for each school will follow on Sunday, May 24, on the University Mall.
Baccalaureate services for graduates of the Schools of Allied Health Professions, Behavioral Health, Nursing, Public Health, and Religion, and the San Manuel Gateway College, will take place in a single service on Saturday, June 13, in the Loma Linda University Church of Seventh-day Adventists. Commencement ceremonies will take place starting on Friday, June 12, and on Sunday, June 14, in the Drayson Center.
Please refer to the published schedule for various times and venues for the different events. I urge you to arrive early, as seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
I am proud of the achievements of the Class of 2020, and I look forward to sharing this important and memorable time with all of you.
