Graduating Student Day

To facilitate communication, Lindenwood University encourages all graduating students to attend Graduating Student Day when all necessary departments needed for the checkout process are available in one convenient location. This event streamlines the checkout process for students who are graduating and gives them an opportunity to get answers to questions about commencement, diploma receipt, graduate programs, career services, and alumni involvement. Graduating Student Day also allows graduating students to work out last-minute arrangements with administrative offices such as the Business Office and Financial Aid. Graduating Student Day is held in May and December.

You may email Career Services at for additional questions about Graduating Student Day.
