Students are required to meet with advisors at two check-points: (1) Junior Year Graduation Check at the completion of 65 credits or higher; (2) Senior Year Graduation Check at the completion of 85 credits or higher. This audit insures that a student understands precisely what graduation requirements remain to be fulfilled. The student’s Degree Works record is the basis for this audit. Students and advisors can access this form any time using KnightWeb to confirm the record of student progress toward the degree—and we encourage students to keep a close check on their Degree Works reports. A hold is placed on student's account when there's a pending graduation check which is removed by the advisor when the graduation check is completed. Students bear the responsibility for tracking their progress toward graduation and for fulfilling all requirements.
Applying For Graduation
Candidates for degrees must apply for graduation by completing a Graduation Application form in the Office of the Registrar in Erwin 102, by deadlines posted on the Academic Calendar. Students qualify for participation in May commencement if they have completed their degree requirements (with the exception of student teaching) in December of the previous calendar year, or will complete them in May or August of the current year. Failure to complete a Graduation Application form by posted deadlines may delay their graduation.
