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. It is important that you consult with your academic adviser prior to submitting the form.

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.
