Please review your BearDeN degree audit carefully for outstanding degree requirements."Graduation Status Checks" will be emailed to campus email addresses during the final semester for all undergraduates except Crane Music students.
Undergraduates in the Crane School of Music are evaluated and informed by Crane staff.
