Review Your Degree Audit

After applying for graduation, review your Academic Requirements in your zzusis Student Center and report any discrepancies to your academic advisor.
Please check your degree audit carefully. If you have questions about University or General Education requirements, contact your academic advisor. For Honors requirements, contact the Honors College. If you have questions about the departmental requirements, contact your department.

Complete Graduation Requirements

All academic requirements must be completed at the time of graduation. This includes University, General Education or Honors, and degree program requirements.
Remember to complete the Writing Portfolio, which is a university requirement for graduation. Contact the Writing Program for more information.
Make sure that you have registered for all the courses you need to graduate and have submitted any work for courses with incomplete grades and any work for correspondence courses in time for grades to appear on your transcript. Also, be sure to have your transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions for any courses taken at other institutions.
If your department will be waiving or substituting any requirements, check to make sure that your department has completed them or has filed these changes with Graduations.
If you will be requesting the waiving or substituting of a University or General Education requirement, you need to request a petition through your academic advisor.
