To receive any Lincoln College-Normal degree or certificate, students must meet all course requirements associated with their degree/certificate program and fulfill all financial commitments to the College. Graduation requirements for all LCN programs are listed on the academics web site. Students are notified each semester of any outstanding financial obligations.

Students should work closely with their academic advisor throughout their academic careers at LCN to be sure that they are meeting all program requirements. Although the College does offer academic advisement for all students and provide an academic checkpoint for graduating students, it is the individual student’s responsibility to ensure that he or she is meeting graduation requirements and making progress toward his/her degree/certificate objective.  The advising of students is a service provided them and does not relieve students of their responsibility to make certain they are meeting the requirements.

To verify graduation eligibility, each student in the Traditional Academic Programs and Center for Adult Learning/ABE Programs must submit a graduation application when they register for their final semester.  The Registrar will review and respond to all graduation applications in the Traditional Academic Programs and the Center for Adult Learning/ABE Programs in a timely manner to inform students of any deficiencies.

The Midwest College of Cosmetology monitors and informs students of their progress toward certificate completion on a monthly basis through instructor evaluations with students.
