Due to COVID-19 precautions and safety guidelines, this ceremony will take place throughout our campus as a drive-through event. Graduates will arrive in one vehicle for them (and guests who ride with them) and up to one additional vehicle. There will be two points during the event when graduates and their guests will be able to get out of their vehicles, one to take photos and one for the stage moment.
Instructions will be emailed to graduates with more specific details and approximate times for them to arrive. The ceremony will begin at 8:00 AM, but graduates will be scheduled to arrive in blocks throughout the day. It is very important that graduates and their guests follow the timeline that will be outlined for them in order to have a smooth ceremony with minimum wait time.
Associate Degree, Diploma, and Technical Certificate of Credit students who complete their programs during Summer Semester 2020, Fall Semester 2020 or Spring Semester 2021 are eligible to participate.
Graduates can register online by going to the Graduation area of our website under My LTC. The deadline to register for this year’s Commencement Ceremony is March 1, 2021.
What is the process?
The Graduation Fee helps cover the cost of the student cap, gown, and tassel, as well as extra expenses incurred for the ceremony. The actual cost exceeds $40. Additional funding for the Commencement Ceremony is provided by the Student Government Association and the Student Activity Fees you pay each semester.
The Graduation Fee is due no later than March 1, 2021. This will ensure that the graduate’s cap and gown order can be placed and received in time for the ceremony. Payments can be made in Banner Web or by phone with the Business Office at 770-533-6910 or 770-533-6908. Graduates must have received confirmation that their registration form was processed before they can pay the Graduation Fee.
