LAS Spring 2019 Commencement
Notes all LAS graduates should know before Commencement
Participation: All students who will have completed their INTL and UO requirements in either Fall 2018, Winter, Spring and/or Summer 2019 are invited to participate in the Spring 2019 commencement ceremonies. Students should apply for their degrees on Duckweb by assigning the term their requirements will be complete.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Undergraduates completing their degree in Summer 2019 (or later) need to complete the “Permission to Walk” form with their advisor and turn it into the LAS Undergraduate Coordinator in PLC 175 in order to participate in the ceremony.
Location: Condon Hall Lawn, on 13th Ave near to Lillis Hall. This is an outdoor venue, and guests are encouraged to bring sun and rain protection, depending on weather conditions of the day.
Time: Graduating students are requested to assemble by the check-in table beginning at 3:00 pm. Ceremony begins promptly at 4:00 pm. The ceremony typically lasts around 90 minutes.
Reception: A small reception immediately follows the ceremony at the UO main reception sites with, with cake and other tasty refreshments for graduates and their guests. The reception location will be very close to the ceremony location, and is still being decided.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How many guests can I invite/where can I get tickets? There is no limit to the number of guests you can invite to the LAS ceremony, and there are no tickets to be issued. Seating is first come, first serve. If you have a guest with accessibility needs or mobility issues, please contact the OCIAS office in 175 PLC, or call 541-346-5051.
Can students participate in both the UO main ceremony and that for LAS? Yes! Students can participate both ceremonies. The UO main ceremony is scheduled to end at 10:30, allowing students enough time to relax and make their way from the Matt Knight Arena to the Condon Hall lawn and check in at the LAS table.
I was given permission to walk; why am I not listed as a graduating senior in the program? The LAS commencement program lists all LAS students who will have completed their requirements between Fall 2018 and Summer 2019. Students who have permission to participate in our Spring commencement ceremony, and whose requirements will be completed after Summer 2019, will be recognized individually as they walk across the stage to accept their diploma cover.
Does LAS offer a Summer Commencement Ceremony? The Latin American Studies program does not hold a separate graduation ceremony during the summer. Any LAS major from the UO who will have completed their UO and LAS requirements between Fall 2018 and Summer 2019 can participate in the Spring 2019 ceremonies for the UO and LAS department.
