Commencement Ceremony


The Graduates Website is LIVE!

Graduation is one of the most rewarding experiences in your academic journey. It means you have met all the requirements to earn your degree or certificate.

To commemorate this achievement, Leeward CC will be celebrating with a Commencement Ceremony on Friday, May 12, 2023 at 5:00pm at the Puʻuloa (Pearl City) campus! 

To be awarded a diploma from the College, you must submit an Application for Graduation. (APP IS CLOSED ON MAY 5th)


To ensure that you receive the RSVP link please apply by the 1st Wednesday in May. To ensure you're listed in the program for this year's Commencement Ceremony, please apply by April 21st.  For more academic related information go to the Graduation website.

* Summer 2022 and Fall 2022 graduates will be sent the RSVP link by mid March 2023. Please do not apply for graduation because you were already conferred degrees.  The email will be sent to your UH email. 

NOTE: The Ceremony is optional.  Diplomas are not distributed at any Commencement Ceremony.  The diploma cover and diploma will be mailed 6-8 weeks after the close of grades.
