Grade Appeals

If a grade is appealed, it must be discussed with the instructor of the course, as well as the Associate Dean. For detailed instructions and timelines of completing a grade appeal, please review the Final Grade Appeal Process within the Grading Policy.

Prior Learning Credit

You may be eligible to have credit awarded for learning gained through one of the following ways:

  • Credit courses completed with a passing grade more than ten years ago
  • A combination of credit courses with no course-to-course relationship to a LC credit course
  • Informal education and/or training activities
  • Self-study
  • Work experience
  • Volunteer activities

The Prior Learning Assessment process begins with a discussion between you (the student) and the Program Chair/Designate from your current program. A faculty member will utilize a variety of assessment tools to assess your knowledge, skills and competencies for the course which you are seeking Prior Learning Credit. If successful, you will receive a grade of PLC for the course.

To apply for prior learning, or for step by step instructions, please view the Prior Learning Assessment Application.

 

Graduation and Convocation

If you have completed all your program requirements or are pending completion based on successful completion of courses you are registered in, our Records team will review your program to determine your eligibility to graduate.

Graduation versus Convocation:

Graduation is the process that happens once you have completed all courses for your program and the Registrar’s Office has verified you are ready to graduate from your program. Once our Records team has confirmed you are eligible to graduate, we will put a notation that you completed your program on your transcript, as well as produce your credential (issued during each Convocation ceremony).

Convocation is the ceremony where you can cross the stage and celebrate the completion of your program! You will need to apply to attend the convocation ceremony.

Checking Graduation Status/Progress:

Through Self Service, you will be able to check your status of your program completion.

  • Log into Self Service
  • Select Academics on the left-hand side of the menu
  • Select Graduation Overview
  • Select Review my Academic Progress

For more details on how to check your progress, see the My Progress under Self Service Videos.
