DeChairo College Center
Loyola University Main Campus
The Baccalaureate Mass is a beautiful liturgical ceremony offered in thanksgiving for the blessings God has bestowed upon the graduates and their families. Music is provided by Loyola's Chapel Choir. Graduates participate in the academic procession with faculty and administrators and must wear their gowns but not their caps or hoods. Graduates will wear full regalia (gowns, caps and hoods) only at Commencement on Saturday.
Bleacher seating is used for families and guests and shoes with flat heels are recommended.
We will provide a live stream of the Baccalaureate Mass for those unable to attend the ceremony. The link to the live stream will be available on this site.
Graduate students only: Request tickets here. Your tickets will be mailed to you in early May.
Undergraduate students: You are responsible for picking up your tickets April 22 or 23 from the Loyola Bookstore when you pick up (or purchase) your cap and gown. More details will be available closer to the event.
Additional Ticket Information: To request additional tickets, please click here. The additional tickets will be for the McGuire Hall seating. The deadline to request additional tickets is Friday, April 17. All students and families will be notified by May 5 regarding the status of their additional ticket request.
