TOP 10 REASONS BACCALAUREATE DEGREE CANDIDATES DO NOT GRADUATE

(Based on Undergraduate Degree Applications during the 2012 to 2013 Academic Year)

1. Missing a course required in the Major.

All students must complete all required courses in their major. You should be meeting with your advisor at least once a semester.

2. Fewer than 120 hours completed.

120 hours is the minimum required for a degree. Some majors require more.

3. Had an I, N, or X grade on Academic Record.

All coursework must be completed no later than the date of graduation.

I = Incomplete - Must be completed by ten weeks into the first Spring or Fall semester after

the “I” was earned or it converts to an “E”. Complete the contract you signed with your instructor.

N = Grade delayed - Contact your Instructor.

X = Grade NOT submitted - See your instructor.

4. Lacking an IF OR GE2K “core” requirement.
