In an effort to continuously improve the student experience at Cal U, we have instituted a Graduation Alert.  These alerts will occur when the student has completed 75% and 90% of the requirements in Degree Works. The alert instructs a student to schedule an advising appointment with their advisor or department chair.  The alert will continue to appear until the department sets a code in the system to indicate the student has been advised as to what courses they must take to graduate at the appropriate time.  Following through with this process will make sure there are no last minute notifications that a student is missing requirements with no time to take corrective action. 

At the undergraduate level in addition to the required course work a student must meet these requirements:

  1.  A minimum 2.00 overall GPA (some majors may require higher),

  2.  A minimum of 120 earned credits not counting developmental courses (some majors may require more credits)

  3. Incomplete grades (I on transcript) must be satisfied or they will turn to an F which could prevent graduation


At the graduate level a student must complete the required course work and possess:

1. Overall GPA of at least 3.00 with no incomplete or failing grades on the transcript (unless repeated with a passing grade)
2. Met your departmental requirements when applicable (residency, comp exams, non-course requirements)
