Graduation FAQs:

What is the difference between graduation and commencement?

Some students confuse graduation with the University's Commencement ceremony, and it is an easy mistake to make.  Graduation is the required process for every student who has completed their degree requirements and wishes to have their degree conferred.  The Commencement ceremony is a voluntary celebratory event to which all graduates are invited but are not required to attend.  Lock Haven offers graduation three times each year (May, August, December) and offers a Commencement ceremony each May.  For more information, visit https://myhaven.lhup.edu/ICS/Registrar/Graduation.jnz

 

What is a dual major?

A dual major is when a student is declared in two different majors or the same major but two different concentrations. Both majors have the same degree designation (i.e. Bachelor of Science).  Only one diploma will be issued.  (Diplomas do not denote the major, only the degree.)

Examples of dual major:

  • Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing AND a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance/Economics
  • Bachelor of Science in Psychology AND a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice


What is a dual degree?

A dual degree is when a student is declared in two different majors with each having a different degree.  A diploma for each degree will be awarded.  (Diplomas do not include the major, only the degree.)

In order to earn both degrees, a student must meet all of the requirements of both majors.

Examples of dual degree:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Psychology AND a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management
  • Bachelor of Arts in History AND a Bachelor of Science in Education in Secondary Education with a concentration in Social Studies
