The University of Louisiana at Lafayette will confer undergraduate and graduate degrees during several Fall 2020 Commencement ceremonies that will be held over two days at Cajun Field and Lamson and Russo parks.

Individual ceremonies for six of UL Lafayette’s eight academic colleges are set for Tuesday, Dec. 8; ceremonies for two academic colleges and the Graduate School will be held the next day.

Most semesters, graduates are celebrated at ceremonies for their respective colleges in addition to a General Assembly held at the Cajundome. This semester, individual college ceremonies will be held at outdoor venues to ensure the health and safety of attendees, and no General Assembly will occur.
