Commencement 2017

On Friday, May 5, LIU will recognize the 2017 graduates of LIU Post, LIU Brentwood, and LIU Riverhead at the 59th annual Commencement ceremony. The ceremony will be an opportunity for you to share the excitement and importance of your academic accomplishments with peers, family, and friends, as the University’s Board of Trustees, Chancellors, Officers, faculty and staff pay tribute to you for the outstanding efforts you have shown in earning your degree.

Each graduate is recognized by name and will have their photo taken in cap and gown as they cross the main stage.

Due to high wind and threats of thunderstorms, the Undergraduate and Graduate Commencement Ceremonies will be held indoors at Pratt Recreation Center. (Please note: times have not changed)

Since there is limited seating available in Pratt Recreation Center for all guests, only those individuals with tickets will be admitted. Each graduate will receive three (3) guest tickets for the indoor ceremony. Inclement Weather tickets are for the family and guests of graduates – not the graduates themselves – to gain admittance to Pratt Recreation Center. Individuals without a ticket should go directly to the following locations: Tilles Center, Hillwood Commons Lecture Hall, Hillwood Commons Fishbowl or Gold Coast Cinema,  for a live webcast viewing of the ceremony. Guests without a ticket that arrive at Pratt Recreation Center will be directed to the above locations. 


Robing will take place at Pratt Recreation Center. You will be directed to the exact location upon arrival.


Tickets may be picked up at the Campus Concierge, 1st floor of Hillwood Commons, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow, May 4.

LIU Post Graduates
Tickets may be picked up at the Campus Concierge, 1st floor of Hillwood Commons, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow, May 4.

Tickets may be picked up at the Student Services Office at each campus tomorrow, May 4.

  • In order to pick-up the Inclement Weather tickets, a photo ID will be required.
  • The graduate must pick up their own tickets (i.e., a friend, family member, etc., cannot pick up the tickets on your behalf).
  • We are unable to honor “lost tickets.” Therefore, it is critical that you keep these in a safe location.

If a schedule adjustment is required prior to your arrival, information will be shared via email, our website, and social media.
