Lone Star College cancels graduation ceremonies
HOUSTON, TX (March 19, 2020) – Lone Star College has announced its plan to cancel all spring 2020 graduation ceremonies, which were scheduled to take place May 6-9.
“This was not an easy decision to make,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “I know what a special time this is for our students, but given the circumstances, we felt it prudent to err on the side of caution.
“We are working on alternative arrangements to help commemorate and celebrate students’ remarkable achievement of graduating and moving on to the next chapter in their life,” said Head.
LSC awards diplomas to students who complete their degree/certificate requirements at the end of each semester.
Currently all LSC facilities are closed to students until April 13. LSC Online classes that started before spring break will resume March 23.
Discussions are also ongoing as to which classes will be moved online and which will remain face to face and that information will be shared with students by April 10.

Head, Ph.D., serves as chancellor of LSC, the largest institution of higher education in the Houston area with an annual economic impact of nearly $3 billion.
