Undergraduate Curriculum

Requirements for the Bachelor’s Degree

In order to receive the Bachelor of Arts degree, students are expected to complete 32 credits, fulfill the general education requirements, attain at least a 2.00 overall Lake Forest College grade point average (without rounding up), and complete the requirements of a major. Credit is earned, recorded, and tallied by courses rather than by semester hours.

Normally, a student is expected to fulfill graduation requirements within four years. All students, including transfer students, must fulfill these requirements. While students are encouraged to work closely with their academic advisors and to heed the advice of the Registrar’s Office to make sufficient progress to complete degree requirements, students are ultimately responsible for keeping abreast of their degree requirements.
