In an effort to consolidate all the tools and resources available to help students stay on track to graduate in four years, we created a one-stop resource for students who need assistance getting classes required to graduate on time. The Graduation Help Desk staff work with students, faculty, and advisors to resolve roadblocks.
Help Desk Checklist for Students
1. Contact your advisor in your college or school. Advisors can answer most questions. This is an important step because processes can vary from school to school, and advisors are the most knowledgeable resources about specific degree and graduation requirements.
2. Check the frequently asked questions below.
3. Still have questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Graduation Procedures as of 2018
As part of ongoing efforts to identify roadblocks to timely graduation, a number of policies and procedures have been reviewed, including the process of requiring students to apply for graduation. Once a student successfully completes their degree requirements, they have earned their degree and will have their degree conferred. Colleges and schools may require that students confirm their intent to participate in commencement ceremonies.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How do students know if they are on track to graduate?
The best way to know is if students meet with their academic advisors and review their degree audit using the Interactive Degree Audit (IDA).
Students may also use the IDA, which allows them to list courses that they might take to estimate how these courses will apply toward a degree. Students should use the planner frequently to adjust for registrations for current and future semesters.
Important: The planner does not register students for courses, guarantee that the courses they have listed will be offered for the semester they indicated, or guarantee that a student will be able to enroll in those courses. Some courses are offered infrequently or only in certain semesters. For more information, visit the IDA website.
