Degree audits have been sent to seniors who are approaching graduation. The degree audit is a report that identifies degree requirements that a student has fulfilled and degree requirements that need to be completed prior to receiving a degree. This report assists the student and the advisor in planning for final coursework. If you have received your degree audit and you have concerns about it, or if you believe that it needs revising, please contact Kathy Laning in the Registrar's Office.
Participation in Commencement
Students may participate in either commencement ceremony but must have completed all the graduation requirements of the general education curriculum, the major and the minor, with the exception of either: six or fewer credits of coursework, OR a fieldwork or internship (i.e., student-teaching).
The regular graduation fee of $50.00 will be added to each student's account. This administrative fee is required of all students who will graduate, including those who may not be able to attend the ceremony.
