LIM College has three graduating classes each year, in January, May and August. In May, one Commencement ceremony is held for all three graduating classes.

August graduation is for students who have no more than three classes to complete during the summer in order to fulfill their degree requirements.

Our annual Commencement ceremony provides an opportunity for LIM College to pay special tribute to students for their outstanding efforts towards earning their degrees. It is also an opportunity for students to share the excitement and importance of their academic accomplishments with faculty, fellow graduates, family and friends.

Commencement information, including ticket information, will be sent ONLY via LIM College e-mail. Please check your LIM College email account for updates regarding the Commencement ceremony and ticket information.
