Graduation

 

Students are responsible for ensuring that their graduation requirements are complete. It is strongly recommended that prior to registering for your final semester, you meet with your adviser to review your remaining requirements. After scheduling your courses, you should review your degree audit to verify that all of your requirements are complete with your scheduled courses.  You are also encouraged to check with your adviser to make sure this is the case!  If your degree audit indicates any missing courses or problems, review your situation with your adviser.

At the beginning of your final semester, you will activate your intent to graduate on eLion. Make sure your local and permanent addresses are up to date so that commencement information and your diploma are mailed to the correct address. Specific commencement information for the College of the Liberal Arts isn’t mailed until a few weeks prior to the end of the semester, so review general commencement information at http://www.registrar.psu.edu/graduation/graduation_index.cfm.

Activating your intent to graduate on eLion will also activate your graduation status for any minors or concurrent majors you are completing. In addition to verifying your major requirements, you will want to verify minor and concurrent major requirements with advisers in the appropriate departments.

Fall 2015 graduation activation dates on eLion:  August 17 - September 8

 

Once you add yourself to the list, Beth Brown will verify your requirements for graduation.  When your schedule is set for the semester, request a degree audit through eLion.  At the beginning of the audit there should be a message of "ALL REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MET OR ARE IN PROGRESS."  If this statement isn't on your degree audit and you think you are completing your requirements, e-mail Beth at eaf4@psu.edu.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO DISCOVER AND RESOLVE PROBLEMS THAT WILL AFFECT GRADUATION PRIOR TO THE DROP/ADD DEADLINE.

(NOTE:  If you are enrolled in English as a concurrent major and your primary major is a B.A. degree, the only areas you need to complete on your degree audit are the English major requirements and total credits of at least 123.  If you are enrolled in English as a concurrent major and your primary major is a B.S., you need the English major requirements, the Bachelor of Arts requirements, and total credits of at least 123.)
