The University of Louisiana at Lafayette will be holding its Summer 2022 Commencement ceremony this Friday, August 5, 2022. The event will be held at the Cajundome beginning at 10:00 am.

Because there are a lot fewer graduates during the summer, all will be conferred at one ceremony. That means everyone receiving Doctorate, Master's, or Bachelor's Degrees.

Tickets are not required by guests to attend. However, those who plan to be there should be aware of the security measures that will be in place.

The following items are allowed:

  • a small purse or clutch 6 ½ inches by 4 ½ inches by 1 inch
  • an equipment bag for essential medical items
  • a diaper bag
  • binoculars in a clear bag or in a case of the same dimensions as purses

The following items will not be allowed:

  • balloons
  • signs
  • wrapped gifts
  • other large items

If you can't attend in person but would like to watch, you can view the live stream of the ceremony on the UL Lafayette Facebook page and on the Cajundome's website.
