Graduation Requirements

Senior Capstone Requirement

Each student at Eugene Lang College must complete a senior capstone requirement in their area of study.  The requirement may be satisfied with an individual project, a collaborative project, or a special seminar course depending on the area of study.  There may be a prerequisite course requirement prior to taking the seminar course. 

Students should consult with the chair of your Area of Study (or designee) when choosing a senior capstone. In addition to providing guidance and feedback about proposals, the chair can also assist you with locating an appropriate seminar option or advisor for your independent project. 

See the Senior Capstone page for more information.

Graduation Audits

All students should schedule an appointment with the senior class advisor at least two semesters in advance of graduation.  The purpose of the appointment is to review your academic progress and ensure all degree requirements will be satisfied for graduation.  The transcript is reviewed for general education and area of study requirements, in addition to residency requirements.  In particular, all students must complete the following:

  1. A minimum 120  total credits toward the degree, with at least 90 credits in liberal arts
  2. A minimum 88 credits in residence at Lang (prorated for transfer students)
  3. First Year Writing I and II (or equivalent transfer credit)
  4. All requirements for a declared area of study, including the Senior Experience 

If you received transfer and/or examination credits, we recommend you confirm all credits were awarded through your unofficial transcript in Self Service.  If you notice any discrepancies in the transcript, please contact Jemima Gedeon for assistance with resolving the problem.
