5. Announcement: Graduation Checks

Summer and Fall Graduates:

Graduation checks for Summer 2016 and Fall 2016 graduates will take place April 18-29.

A graduation check is an optional appointment with the FACS graduation officer to review your progress towards graduation and confirm you will complete all requirements the semester in which you plan to graduate.  A graduation check is not required to graduate.  As long as you apply for graduation during the semester in which you plan to graduate, your record will be evaluated and, if you have satisfied all requirements, you will be cleared for graduation.

To schedule a graduation check, send an email with your availability to Kelly King.

Please note, a graduation check does not replace a regular advising appointment; you will not be cleared to register during a graduation check.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Success and Advising Center.
