2014 Graduation Information
Students graduating from LPS programs are invited to two celebratory events: the LPS Graduation Ceremony and University Commencement. At the LPS Graduation Ceremony, your degree program will be called to the stage and your name will be announced. At the University Commencement, students from each school at Penn are seated and stand together as President Gutmann announces each class as a whole.
The 2014 Penn Commencement will be held on Monday, May 19, on Franklin Field (33rd and Spruce Streets). More information is available at www.upenn.edu/commencement/.

Ceremony: It is imperative that graduating students arrive promptly by 3:00pm at Penn Park’s South Green. Bring your academic regalia and weather appropriate shoes. The robing tent, located on South Green, will be clearly marked. Students should look for signage designating the meeting location for their particular program. Report to the administrator assigned to your program area to check you in and to determine your place in the processional line. Students will process in proper order from the robing tent into the ceremony tent.
