Graduation Walking Policy
Students who are within two (2) 3-credit general education electives of completing their degree may walk in the commencement ceremony.

Any student can file a written appeal to the President at least one month in advance of a commencement ceremony, if the student feels that their circumstances might warrant additional policy flexibility.

Credits and Graduation
No student is ever graduated in the database or issued an actual diploma until all credits and requirements are complete.

Landmark College has thee official graduation dates per year (December, May, and August) even though students may complete their last credits and requirements in January or at any earlier point in the summer sessions; those finishing at these times officially graduate on the upcoming graduation date and not the one prior to finishing (or when they may have walked).

Walking at graduation is not a guarantee of earning a degree. For those students who walk at graduation prior to meeting ALL graduation requirements, no academic honors will be conferred until after the student meets ALL academic requirements.
