Graduation Requirements for All Students

An overall grade-point average of at least 2.00 is required for graduation.

Students must complete an approved major program with an average of at least 2.00 in courses taken in the major.

Students must complete at least 32 course credits for the A.B./B.S. Science degree and at least 38 course credits for the B.S. Engineering degree. Certain Military Science courses may not be counted toward the course minimum.

The senior year must be completed in full-time residence at Lafayette. “Fulltime” is defined to be a minimum of three courses per semester.

Students are responsible for determining that they have satisfied all requirements for graduation. To participate in the commencement ceremony, students must have completed all degree requirements.
