VSC Graduation Standards


Vermont State College Graduation Standards

A Lyndon State College degree attests not only to accomplishment in the major field and general education, but to acquisition of transcendent skills expected of all college graduates in today’s world.  For this reason, Lyndon is committed - as are all of the Vermont State Colleges - to ensuring that graduates have achieved proficiency in written and oral expression, information literacy, and quantitative reasoning.

All students entering Lyndon State College will be expected to demonstrate mastery of written expression, information literacy, quantitative reasoning, and oral expression prior to, and as a requirement for, graduation.  Assessment methods are subject to change and vary across programs.  Any student with a documented disability should contact the Learning Specialist as any accommodation that is allowed for testing in a class will be permitted for testing for graduation standards.

Each of these standards will be assessed as students reach advanced levels of study, generally as juniors or seniors.  In practice, this means that Associate degree students will encounter the assessments in the second year.  Bachelor’s degree students will encounter the assessments in the third or fourth year of full-time attendance.  Transfer students will encounter the assessments at times appropriate to their entry level, but prior to their graduation.

For more information, please speak with your faculty advisor or contact the office of the Dean of Academic Affairs.
