Slippery Rock University

Completion of Degree/Certificate Requirements

It is the students’ responsibility to complete all degree/certificate requirements and to know the university’s requirements for graduation. This is not the responsibility of the students’ advisers.

Students must meet all graduation requirements by the official end of the semester in which they have applied to graduate. Failure to do so (Incomplete grades in any course or “X” grades in required courses, no application, etc.) will result in the updating of the students’ graduation date to the end of the term/year the work is eventually completed.

Effective with undergraduate students entering January 2010 and thereafter, at least 50% of their Major credits must be earned at a PASSHE university. Students originally admitted before January 2010, even if they leave the university and are readmitted after January 2010, will not be affected by this new policy.

Collaborative programs will be identified such that residency can be met consistent with the collaborative agreement.

Students enrolled in summer internships will have their graduation date backdated to the end of summer if they complete their internships and are graded by September 30. Students not meeting this deadline will be graduated in the following December, or later, upon completion of graduation requirements.
