FAQ'S

SENIOR ISSUES:

1.      WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS SENIORS NEED TO BE AWARE OF AS THEY PREPARE FOR GRADUATION? 

  • Students must complete an online degree application in their third year, stating the date they plan to complete graduation requirements. The graduation application can be found on the Student Portal, under “Courses and Registration”.
  • This application must be completed at least 1 year in advance of the anticipated graduation. The application deadline for undergraduates is one year prior to graduation and there is a late fee of $50.00 for students who do not meet this deadline.
  • After the online application is submitted, the next step is to fill out the Program Checklist and bring it in to the Office of the Registrar.
  • Common problems revealed in graduation audits include:
    • Insufficient semester hours to complete a degree
    • Insufficient overall upper credits.
    • Insufficient upper level credits in field of study.
    • Not having the required overall G.P.A.
    • Not having the required G.P.A. in major courses.
    • Mistakes in graduation audits: double check your graduation audit with your Academic Advisor or Dr. Gillion (Director of Academic Advising) to ensure that you can graduate when intended.
  • Please note, ALL applicants will be assessed a $50 late fee if their application for graduation is past the aforementioned date for their degree.

 2.      CAN I GRADUATE WITH OUTSTANDING CREDITS?

  • No, you may not graduate with outstanding credits. Please ensure that you have fully completed your program before the time you intend on graduating.

 3.      I JUST RECEIVED AN EMAIL SAYING THAT I CANNOT GRADUATE ON TIME. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
