  • Honor Society Cord - Students who have been inducted into the academic honor society may wear honor society cords over graduation regalia.
  • Honor Stoles - Provided b Lakeview to select students who have met the graduation honor criteria.

Official graduation honors are calculated after grades are finalized and are included on the students' diplomas.  Since commencement programs are printed prior to the end of the current term, honors listed in the program and recognized during the ceremony are based on the grade point average of one semester prior to graduation.  Students who meet the criteria following graduation will receive an honor stole when diplomas are released.  The diploma will also indicate the honors earned.

Please note:  Any other apparel must be approved by the administration prior to graduation.

College Pins

Students will receive a Lakeview College of Nursing pin.  The cost of the pin is included in the graduation fee.

Diplomas

Diploma covers will be distributed at commencement.  Diplomas will be mailed approximately one month after commencement when an audit of the student's record is complete (all transfer credits are received and all Lakeview grades are posted).  Students who received financial aid will be required to complete exit counseling before anything can be released.

Graduate Survey

A survey will be distributed to all potential graduates and must be completed and submitted at least 3 weeks prior to Commencement.  This survey information is used for publication as well as to provide information about each graduate to be read as they walk across the stage at the commencement ceremony.

Pictures

All graduates are encouraged to participate in a pre-graduation individual photo.  This is included in the standard graduation fee  Additional individual portraits will be available for purchase.  A photographer will be on-site at graduation.  Unfortunately, if you are not able to attend, there will be no reschedule time.  However, if that is the case, please contact us to see if it will be possible to take or provide an alternative cap and gown photo.
