Student Responsibility for Graduation Requirements

I. At the Undergraduate Level

The College is always careful to point out that the student has the final responsibility for making certain that all graduation requirements are met.

The College at Brockport provides all matriculated students with an academic advisor and a variety of services and procedures intended to assist them in planning an academic program consistent with institutional degree requirements and with the student's own academic goals. To carry out this responsibility, the student must read and understand the degree requirements, the General Education requirements, and the requirements for majors, minors and certification programs. The purpose of a Degree Audit is to help you keep on track with all these requirements but you are the one responsible. Also, please understand that some problems cannot be fixed. For example, if a student completes what s/he thinks is the last semester and does not have 120 credits, the student cannot graduate until s/he has 120 credits — no matter who miscounted the credits.
