Degree Completion Agreements

The DCA process is an audit of a student’s academic record to ensure that the student is on the right path toward graduation and commencement.

The main purpose of the DCA meeting is to identify remaining degree requirements needed for students to graduate. This entails conducting a senior audit, reviewing all courses taken, determining any outstanding graduation requirements, and adhering to the academic policies stated in the University Catalog such as major/core requirements and limitations of credits. Additionally, students who plan to graduate in spring or summer 2021 will have the opportunity to enroll in classes before registration begins and have priority in obtaining commencement tickets.
