Post Commencement Ceremony

Following the Commencement Ceremony, guests are encouraged to remain in their seats until all graduates have left the venue. Graduates are greeted and congratulated by LTCC’s faculty, staff, and administrators immediately following the ceremony together as one group for a ‘send off’. Following the processional line, guests are encouraged to meet their graduate outside fo the venue for photos.

Mobility Impaired

Upon advance request, the President’s Office will provide a Mobility Impaired Parking Permit for vehicles with a mobility impaired guest. This permit will allow parking at a specific location at the main parking lot depending on your needs. The college does not have wheelchairs available for use.

Handicapped parking is available at the venue, however, spaces will be limited. Special seating arrangements will be included. Note: Mobility Impaired Parking Permits are not the same as a state-issued "handicap" permit/tag. Mobility impaired guests, whether they own a state "handicap" tag/permit or not, should apply for a Mobility Impaired Parking Permit if they would like special parking and seating accommodations.


On Friday, all central roads, including those surrounding the venue, will be open and parking is first come first served. Signs and staff personnel will direct vehicles to these and other available parking areas. Parking is free of charge.
