Commencement Weekend Schedule - Winter 2018

Winter Commencement Ceremonies Rescheduled

Due to safety and health concerns regarding the mumps outbreak on the Romeoville campus of Lewis University, we are rescheduling all Commencement Ceremonies and related activities planned for the weekend of December 15 and 16. These Commencement Ceremonies will be rescheduled as part of May Commencement Weekend (Friday, May 17 – Sunday, May 19, 2019). Specific details will be forthcoming before January 1, 2019.

This decision was not taken lightly and we understand that this will create hardships for our graduates and their loved ones. This decision is consistent with our cancellation or rescheduling of all public events occurring on campus before December 28, 2018, a decision designed to mitigate the further transmission of the mumps.

We regret that this rescheduling will have a significant impact on graduates and their families.

Additional information for graduates is available here. December graduates are encouraged to monitor their Lewis University e-mail account and visit for additional information.

Please direct further questions or concerns regarding Commencement to or call the Office of the Register at (815) 836-5133.
