You're about to reach the biggest milestone of your academic career — graduation!

All the years of working hard have paid off and now your big day is just around the corner.

This site is your resource for everything graduation related, from ordering your cap and gown to details about the official ceremony.

You Earned It!

Our Ring Ceremony celebrates the bond between all UL graduates. Students and past graduates are presented with the rings they ordered by President Savoie during the ceremony.

The night before the ceremony, the rings are loaded onto a custom-built metal pirogue to spend the night on the water, guarded by students.

Congratulations, Class of 2020

Well done!

You've come a long way, and we're proud to have helped you get there. After years of sacrifice and hard work, you have earned your degree—an important milestone.

Thank you for choosing to walk with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette for your journey in higher education! Your walk to the Commencement stage to receive your diploma and your brick on the Walk of Honor will forever make you a  Ragin' Grad!
