Congratulations Falcon, you’re graduating!
In lieu of the traditional in-person Graduation Fair, we’ve compiled virtual resources for graduating students. The Lackawanna College Virtual Graduation Fair is here to help students complete all necessary preparations for graduation.
For the latest information on the Commencement Ceremony, please visit the graduation page.
Lackawanna College is closely tracking coronavirus (COVID-19) and working to mitigate potential risks. The safety of students, faculty, staff, and friends of the college is a top priority.
Welcome to the Virtual Graduation Fair
In order to confer your degree, participate in Commencement activities, and receive your diploma, you must apply for graduation.
The Registrar’s Office is currently reviewing all graduation applications. If you don’t hear anything from us, that’s a good thing- you are on track to graduate! If we do reach out to you, don’t panic, most issues are easily resolved. If we send you an email to contact our office, please get back in touch with us as soon as possible. Just a reminder that if you are short one class, you can still participate in graduation by filling out the early participation statement.
Caps & Gowns
Students will enter in their vehicles wearing a facemask. Cars will enter Vine St. and visit the “Cap & Gown” and “Diploma” tent stations. Nicole Bradigan, PTK Advisor, will hand out PTK stoles. Cars will exit on Washington St.
For those unable to pick up their cap and gown, more information will be available at a later date.
Graduates will receive their diplomas by mail by June 2021.
For questions about your diploma, contact the Registrar’s Office.
