Liberty University Online Academy Graduation Ceremony

Graduation for Online High School

Experience Liberty Online Academy – In Person!

Each May, Liberty University Online Academy graduates and their families are given the opportunity to celebrate their academic achievements with their LUOA family. Graduates are able to see the Liberty campus firsthand, meeting fellow classmates who have shared in their high school experiences. Along with their families, teachers, advisors, administrators, and fellow graduates, students are able to share in the celebration of what God has accomplished in them and through them over the course of their education. It is an experience you don’t want to miss! Need more information? Check out our guide to commencement!

Participation in Graduation

In order for a student to qualify for participation in the graduation ceremonies, they must be considered a full-time senior by February 1st of the graduating year. For example, a student who is looking to participate in the May 2019 commencement exercises must be considered a full-time senior by February 1, 2019. Students and parents may contact their senior class academic advisor in order to determine if they are eligible to participate.

Commencement Schedule

Commencement will be held in Williams Stadium on Saturday, May 11, 2019. The graduation weekend is full of many events for the graduates and their families to enjoy. Please refer to our campus map when locating each event. These activities are tentative to change:


Friday, May 10, 2019:

  • 1:00pm – 4:00pm: Meet and Greet Check-in at Bruner Hall. This is optional, but we do recommend so you are familiar with Liberty campus.


Saturday, May 11, 2019

  • The commencement speaker, which will be speaking in the larger ceremony in Williams Stadium, is Vice President Mike Pence. This is certainly exciting for our graduates, but it will also come with extra measures of security. We will be sure to stay on top of these details as we get closer to the event.
  • 6:30 am: Graduates will need to meet with LUOA staff at the LaHaye Multi-purpose center. This is the same location where the LUOA ceremony will be held later that day.
  • 10:00 am: Main Commencement ceremony in Williams Stadium
  • 1:00 pm: LUOA Ceremony in the LaHaye Multi-purpose Center

*Please note: Diplomas are not awarded to students on graduation day. Students will be sent their diploma in the mail upon completing all graduation requirements. Diplomas are mailed out no sooner than one month after the graduation ceremony.


Graduation Regalia

Students must purchase their graduation regalia, class rings, and more through Herf Jones. To order these items, click here: Valley Graduate Services. Seniors will be sent more information concerning the specific regalia items that will be needed in mid-November of their graduating year.


Please be sure to arrange your graduation accommodations early, as hotels in the area are booked quickly.
