Student Hi, I’d like to drop off my graduation form. I understand you need this in order to process my diploma. Registrar OK, I’ll take that. Uh, before you leave, lemme check our computer … Uh, looks like you’re OK for graduation and … hmmmm. Actually, I’m getting a warning flag on your academic record here. Student Really? Registrar Yeah, let’s see what’s what. Uh, OK, are you familiar with our graduation requirements? Student Um, I think so. Registrar Then you know you need forty-eight credits in your major field to graduate, and at least twenty-four credits at the intermediate level or higher. Also, after your second year, you have to meet with your department chair to outline a plan for the rest of your time here. In the past, we also issued letters before a student’s final year began to let them know what they needed to take in their final year to be OK. But we don’t do that anymore … Student I-I definitely met with my chairperson two years ago. Uh, he told me that I needed eight more courses at the intermediate level or higher in the last two years to be OK … so I’m not sure what the problem is. I made sure I got those credits. Registrar Unfortunately, the computer’s usually pretty reliable … so I’m not sure what’s going on here. Student It could be that I’ve taken two basic courses but coupled both of them with field experiences. Registrar What do you mean? Student Well, I could only take intro courses because there were no intermediate-level courses available for those particular topics. My chairperson told me that if I did independent field research in addition to the assigned work in each course, they would count as intermediate-level courses. My classmates, um, well, some of my classmates, did this for an easy way to meet the intermediate course requirement.

It was a nice supplement to just sitting and listening to lectures. Registrar I’m sure that’s true, but the computer’s still showing them as basic-level courses, despite the fieldwork. Student I’m not sure what to do, then. I mean, should I cancel my graduation party? Registrar No! No reason to get worried like that. Just contact your chairperson immediately, OK? Uh, tell him to call me as soon as possible so that we can verify your fieldwork arrangement and certify those credits right away. It’s not like there’s an actual deadline today or anything, but if more than a few weeks go by, we might have a real problem that would be very difficult to fix in time for you to graduate. In fact, there probably would be nothing we could do. Student I’ll get on that. Transcript for Track 2: Narrator Listen again to part of the conversation. Then answer the question. Student I’m not sure what the problem is. I made sure I got those credits.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
