Commencement (Walking) Honors

Walking honors are for students who complete requirements in May or August and participate in Spring commencement. These honors are calculated using all credits earned (both LCSC credits as well as all transfer credits) by the end of the Fall term prior to Spring commencement.

Grade points for courses “academically forgiven” will be used to calculate graduation honors. This is regardless of whether the academic forgiveness was granted at LCSC or another college. For either the walking or final honors the number of credits used will be inclusive of courses graded Pass (P).

Graduation (Final) Honors
