The following steps will assist you prior to submitting your Application for Graduation.
- Run a Degree Audit. Login to FalconNet Online Services. Select Registration and Records on the left navigation bar, and then select Degree Audit. (If you experience technical difficulties running your Degree Audit, please contact the Records Department. It is your responsibility to run the audit to make sure that you have met graduation requirements for the program you are applying under. )
- When reading your Degree Audit, each category of requirements will read COMPLETE if the requirement has been satisfied. If you have not met a requirement, or if courses are in progress, it will read NOT SATISFIED.
- Speak to Department Chairs concerning any course substitution requested.
- If you know the class(es) or requirements needed to take to complete your graduation requirement(s), enroll in the coursework to satisfy the requirement prior to submitting your application. Academic Advisors will not run or re-run audits that read COMPLETE in all sections.
- If you do NOT know what to take to satisfy requirements or have additional questions regarding your audit, please meet with an Academic Advisor prior to submitting your application. Advisors will assist in providing additional course recommendations, but will not build schedules or select sections.
