Students may choose to graduate under the catalog in effect at the time of their first enrollment or any subsequent catalog provided that the student graduates within eight years from the date of the first enrollment. If students do not graduate within this eight-year period, they may be subject to fulfilling any new program requirements in effect.
There is one graduation ceremony a year which is held in May; however, degrees are conferred at the end of each term. Students are not eligible to participate in the ceremony if they do not meet the following requirements:
- Undergraduate students must have no more than three courses left to complete in the summer
- Graduate students must have no more than 12 credits left to complete in the summer.
Every student must sign and return a Graduation & Diploma Application in order to have their degree conferred, and every student must sign and return a Ceremony Petition in order to participate in the ceremony.
Student right-to-know graduation rates are available in the Institutional Research Office and on the Lynn University website.
