La Roche University is pleased to announce the 55th commencement will be held in person on Saturday, May 8.

The University will host two separate ceremonies in the Kerr Fitness & Sports Center to ensure adequate social distancing.

The morning ceremony for graduates of the Science, Education and Nursing Divisions will begin at 10 a.m., followed by an afternoon session for graduates of the Design, Humanities and Management Divisions at 2 p.m.

La Roche will adhere to COVID-19 safety measures and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Allegheny County Health Department. Temperature screenings, face coverings and social distancing will be required, and hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the Fitness Center.

Due to restrictions on public gathering sizes, guests will be limited to two per graduate, and tickets will be required.

A live stream of the events will be available to those who are unable to attend.
