Graduating seniors - If this is what should be your last semester run an audit and everything should appear green. At the very top under the charts it should read “ALL REQUIREMENTS COMPLETED WITH IN PROGRESS COURSES USED”.

If it does you are good to go pending you pass your classes and don’t make schedule changes.

If it does not, you need to see an advisor ASAP to see what you are missing.
