Graduation-Academic Advisory Center (AAC) - Carnegie Mellon University

Who does what

When it comes time to graduate, each Academic Advisor is responsible for certifying their major or minor on your student record.  Your primary major department generally is the one who holds your diploma ceremony; where you will receive your diploma.  It is essential that your are in regular contact with all your advisors concerning your progress toward completion of their particular major, minor, program, etc.

Academic Audit

The Academic Audit is a program that allows student to "audit" the courses they have taken with a set of major(s) and minor(s) requirements.  It is not an official university document.  If you have any questions about its results, contact the Academic Advisor.

Graduation Semester Timeline

Prior to your graduation semester, you should have been in regular contact with your advisors.  Early in the graduation semester, you will begin to receive notifications from many offices on campus.  It is essential that you regularly respond to your email during this time.
