Graduation Audit: A Courtesy to You
Throughout the Summer Quarter of your 3L year Kendra Millay (K.Millay@northeastern.edu) in ASA will check your record to help you determine what outstanding graduation requirements you need to fulfill. You do not need to attend an in-person meeting for this review. Instead, Kendra will email you after she has completed your individual graduation audit. This process begins in June and is ongoing throughout the Summer Quarter. Please be patient, as this is a manual process. However, it is your responsibility to remain cognizant of your graduation requirements and ensure you are on-track to graduate.
