You also need to meet the requirements specific to your degree:

  • Submit a final Academic Statement to your transcript for graduation (if you are an undergrad admitted or re-admitted Fall 2013 or later)
  • If you were admitted to a Tribal program prior to Fall 2017: receive Director’s Approval.
