To qualify for a Lawrence University B.A. or B.Mus. degree, students are required to have a minimum of six terms in residence and 108 units earned in Lawrence courses. Nine terms in residence and 162 units are required for the five-year B.A. and B.Mus. double-degree program. Seniors must be in residence or in a cooperative degree program until the requirements for a major have been certified as complete.
Attending courses on the Appleton campus counts as being in residence. Participating in a Lawrence-sponsored or Lawrence-affiliated off-campus program also counts as being in residence, and units earned in these programs are counted as Lawrence courses, not as transfer credit. The optional December Term does not count toward the residence requirement.
Petitions for exceptions must be approved by the Faculty Subcommittee on Administration.
