The link is usually active one semester before graduation.

Once you have completed the College of Engineering Graduation Checklist (above), you must meet with the Computer Science and Computer Engineering Program Coordinator (Dr. Hendrix) for a final review and signature. Dr. Hendrix will verify that the classes you have registered for in your last semester should complete your graduation requirements. You will then be directed to take the form to Ms. Lightbourne in ENB 342A for final submission and further processing by the Department.
