Prepare for Graduation
To receive a degree from Lake Region State College it is necessary to apply for the degree by filing an Intent To Graduate form. Upon receipt of the form, the Registrar's office will review your records to ensure all requirements for graduation have been met and you will be notified of any deficiencies. The Intent to Graduate form should be filed early in, or prior to, your final semester so you will have time to address any missing requirements.

Lake Region State College has one commencement exercise each calendar year on the main campus, usually in May on the last day of the spring semester. The Grand Forks AFB has a separate commencement ceremony in the spring. Degrees are posted to student transcripts within four to six weeks after the end of the graduating semester and diplomas are mailed at the same time.
