Graduation 2021


Congratulations to the Class of 2021! 

We are excited to recognize the Class of 2021 at Lorain County Community College’s 57th Annual Commencement.  While we are unable to host our traditional ceremony due to limitations on event capacity because of COVID-19, we have planned a very special experience to commemorate this graduating class. This year’s commencement experience offers three special opportunities – a virtual ceremony that will confer degrees, an in-person stage crossing at Stocker Center and a large-scale public recognition on LCCC’s campus.


2021 Virtual Commencement Ceremony

The official 57th Annual Commencement Ceremony will be held virtually on Saturday, May 15, 2021 starting at 9:30 a.m. featuring the conferring of degrees.  The ceremony will be streamed so you can share this moment with an at-home watch party with your friends and family.   We invite you register today as an LCCC grad or a University Partnership grad to participate in the virtual ceremony and order your complimentary regalia. Those who register will receive further communications regarding special opportunities available that celebrate the Class of 2021, along with opportunities to submit a video message or photo as part of this year’s virtual ceremony.

University Partnership Graduate Commencement Registration


Stocker Center Stage Crossing 

While we are not able to conduct our official ceremony in person, we are delighted to offer LCCC and University Partnership graduates of the Class of 2021 who are interested an in-person opportunity to cross the Stocker Center stage on Commencement weekend and receive your diploma from LCCC President Dr. Marcia Ballinger and a professional photo.  Those signing up for this feature of the 2021 Commencement Celebration will be able to bring up to 2 guests to sit in the Stocker Center Hoke Theatre audience.  Please indicate your interest in participating in the Stocker Stage Crossing as you register.  You will receive information regarding your assigned date and time in the coming weeks.


Public Recognition dedicated to the Class of 2021

During the week of May 15, plan a visit to campus with your friends and family to walk through a special large-scale public recognition display dedicated to the Class of 2021.  This display will be located on campus near the Campana Center and provide you with additional opportunities to take photos and celebrate your accomplishments. More details on this project will be shared here soon.
