LLCC calculates honors and high honors for associate degree graduates by combining all credits transferred from other colleges with those taken at LLCC. Honors and high honors are also awarded for certificate programs requiring 30 or more semester hours. Student honors for certificate graduates are calculated by using only those courses needed for the certificate.

Those graduates who have an overall grade point average of 3.50 to 3.74 are considered “graduates with honors.” Graduates with an overall grade point average of 3.75 to 4.00 are considered “graduates with high honors.” This status is posted on LLCC transcripts and diplomas after final evaluations have been conducted by the Student Records Evaluators.

  • Graduation is the conferring of a degree or certificate upon completion of all program requirements. Students are made graduates at the end of the fall, spring and summer semesters.
  • Commencement is the ceremony to celebrate the completion of college work. The annual commencement ceremony is typically held in May of each year.
