Lackawanna College Graduation Requirements

All students meeting graduation requirements for December, May, or August graduation must complete an application for graduation through their Capstone – College 201 or College 401 class. All potential graduates are required to register for the Capstone class and complete all class requirements. The College is not responsible for those students who fail to apply by the deadline since graduation orders must be placed well in advance. Students who meet requirements but do not apply for graduation will not be listed on the graduation roster, nor will completion of degree be indicated on the student transcript. No diploma will be ordered for students who do not apply for graduation. Students who are short of curriculum requirements by more than one course or owe the college any outstanding balance will not participate in commencement. For any questions regarding graduation requirements, please contact the Registrar.
