Requirements for Graduation (Saint Anselm College, Academic Catalogue P. 32)
Requirements for the baccalaureate degree are satisfied upon successful completion of 40 semester courses, at least 30 of which must be of "C-" grade or higher.
Candidates for degrees must have an average of 2.00 or higher in the departmental and ancillary courses of the major field of concentration.
Only those seniors who have met all graduation requirements are eligible to participate in the commencement exercises.
Exemption from, or exception to, any requirement for a degree is valid only when approved in writing by either the registrar or the dean of the college.
A more detailed listing of required and recommended courses will be found under the departmental headings.
Candidates for degrees must spend eight full semesters at Saint Anselm College, unless the time has been shortened by the granting of advanced standing to students transferring from other institutions, or by summer courses taken with the approval of the dean of the college or the registrar. The entire senior year must be spent at Saint Anselm College.
For students who have matriculated full-time, the expectation is that requirements for the degree will be completed within eight years from the date of initial enrollment. Courses in specialized areas will not be recognized towards requirements for the degree after eight years.
No student will be recommended for graduation who has not satisfied the faculty and administration of the college as to uprightness of character and sufficient accomplishment in scholarship.
An application for degree and intent to graduate form must be completed and submitted to the registrar's office.
