Bachelor’s degree students must have earned a minimum of 60 Lakeland College credits and at least a 3.5 grade-point-average to be eligible for honors. Commencement ceremony honors will be based on all coursework completed by the final day of the first seven-week session of the spring term. Students who have earned honors at this point will receive honors cords with their caps and gowns. Honors will be announced at the ceremony.
Please note that permanent and official honors will be computed once all courses are completed and grades are entered. Honors may change for students as all grades will not be recorded at the time of the Commencement ceremony. Permanent and official honors are recorded on the permanent record and diploma.
Honors are not awarded to master's degree students.
