Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing and Radiography Programs recognize students who have excelled academically at three ceremonies: Honor & Award Ceremony, Pinning Ceremony, and Graduation.

Honor & Award Ceremonies

Twice a year, an award ceremony is held to recognize students who excel both professionally and academically. Award recipients and their guests are invited to this ceremony, which is open to all students and is also attended by faculty members.

Awards and scholarships are given based on available funding. Some scholarships are awarded to students who have documented financial need. Honor certificates are presented to students who receive a GPA of 3.5 from the previous semester’s Nursing course.

A complete listing of awards, with detailed criteria for each, is available from the Director, Student & Alumni Affairs. Scholarships and Award criteria are also included in the Student Handbook.

Pinning Ceremony

Pinning ceremonies are held in December and May each year. At these events held at Regis College, Weston campus, each graduate receives their program pin. In addition, honor certificates and awards are presented to students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement.

Recipients of two of the awards given, the Student Organization Award and the Student Organization Book Award, are selected by graduating classes. Criteria for each award can be found in the Student Handbook.

Student speakers address those in attendance and present a class gift to the VP for Education. This gift is to support future generations of LM/RC students enrolled in the Program.


Graduation ceremonies are held in May each year at Regis College. At this formal commencement exercise each student who has met the graduation requirements of the program during the past academic year receives an associate of science degree from Regis College.
