Graduation Requirements

A student admitted to St. Olaf College is considered a degree candidate and registers under the regulations and degree requirements listed in the catalog for the academic year the student first enters St. Olaf as a degree candidate. No candidate for a degree will receive a diploma until all requirements have been fulfilled. While some course requirements may be fulfilled differently, graduation requirements themselves are not subject to waiver for individual students.

A student in doubt about how certain requirements are interpreted should consult the Academic Regulations section of this catalog or contact the registrar.

Responsibility for understanding and meeting Graduation Requirements stated in the St. Olaf Catalog rests entirely with the student. Faculty advisers and the registrar will assist in every way possible.

Note: For numerical purposes, the term “course” means a full (1.00) course credit, as distinguished from fractional course credits.
