Graduation Preparation

Degrees are awarded three times annually: January, May, and August. The Graduation Requirements page is an important first step in double checking that you are ready to begin preparing for graduation.

In preparation for graduation, all students must file a “Graduation Application” online in LOCUS at: http://www.luc.edu/regrec/graduation.shtml by the official application deadlines.

In addition, all students who are pursuing a Juris Doctor degree must schedule a Graduation Interview with Dora Jacks, Law Registrar one semester prior to your final semester to review your credentials and register for graduation.
