Liberty University Online Academy Graduation Ceremony

Our 2020 Ceremony

Traditionally, Liberty University Online Academy has held an in-person ceremony for our graduating seniors in May of that school year. However, due to COVID-19 and Virginia Governor Northam’s order to shelter in place until June 10th, we are unable to move forward in our usual plans. LUOA is still striving to make this year a year to remember, but our plans just look a little bit different. We are offering two options for our students:


Virtual Ceremony

We are excited to share that LUOA will be going virtual for graduation on July 11, 2020! We will release more details as they are available. If you have any questions, please email our team at


In-Person Ceremony

During the weekend of September 11th and 12th, we are participating in Liberty University’s Commencement Exercises. On that Friday, we will have a special LUOA Ceremony where students will get the opportunity to walk across the stage and celebrate all their accomplishments. There will also be other fun activities that weekend including Liberty’s first home football game of the season! To RSVP,  please email our team at

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 LUOA’s 2020 commencement exercises must be considered a full-time senior by February 1, 2020. Students and parents may contact their academic advisor in order to determine if they are eligible to participate.
