All colleges and universities establish certain requirements that must be met before a degree is granted. These requirements concern courses, majors, grade point average, residence requirements and other requirements with which the student must comply. Advisors, department heads and academic deans will advise a student on how to meet these requirements, but the student is responsible for fulfilling them. Upon completion of the required course work, authorized personnel of the University will determine if the student is eligible to receive a degree. If the requirements have not been met, the degree will be withheld until obligations have been fulfilled. It is important for each student to become acquainted with the degree requirements and to remain informed.
