Since Louisiana has moved into Phase 3, Southeastern has developed a new plan to honor its spring, summer and fall 2020 graduates. The pandemic and statewide event limitations previously prevented the university from holding a face-to-face commencement for spring graduates in August as originally planned.
Southeastern is now able to move forward with honoring its graduates in four separate, in-person ceremonies in Strawberry Stadium.
Southeastern will hold two commencement ceremonies on Tuesday, Dec. 8 – at 10 a.m. for the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and at 2 p.m. for the College of Business. The College of Nursing and Health Sciences commencement ceremony is scheduled Wednesday, Dec. 9, at 10 a.m., while the ceremony for the College of Education and the College of Science and Technology will take place the same day at 2 p.m.
So that all guests may be safely accommodated according to current capacity limitations, each graduate may invite two guests. All participants and guests will be required to wear masks, social distancing will be strictly enforced, and limited handicap seating is available. For those unable to attend, all ceremonies will be streamed at http://thesoutheasternchannel.com/programs/graduation.
