Frequently Asked Questions
We are in the early stages of planning for 2023. Please watch this space for more details to come!
The Graduation Services Office will send invitations to all students that have graduated this year or who have applied to graduate during spring term. The invitation will be sent to the email address that students used when they applied to graduate.
Graduates will not be able to carry any personal belongings with them (mobile phones are okay). Please leave purses and bags at home or securely stored in your vehicle. The event will follow a “Clear Bag” policy wherein all guests may only bring a clear bag to the ceremony; we ask that all other bags be kept at home or in vehicles. Please remember that LBCC is a drug-free and alcohol-free campus.

Regalia is recommended but optional for the ceremony. If you choose to order, items will be shipped to LBCC to avoid extra shipping costs for students. A pick-up date will be arranged so you can get your cap and gown prior to Commencement. The deadline to order is April 25. If you order after that date, shipping will cost extra and it will be shipped to your home address.
You can order regalia by going to Herff Jones. Follow the instructions on the page. When you see the "Graduation Packages" options, be sure to look at the tabs above -- you can order a package or you can order just a cap and gown for a lower cost. If you have questions, call 360-254-7870. Leave a message, and the company will call you back within 24 hours.
You can also borrow gowns from LBCC by emailing email@example.com.
If you have questions about regalia, contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
