Compliance Certification Report
Comprehensive Standards 3.5.2


Last Updated August 13, 2004
(static edition)


Comprehensive Standards 3.5.2:

The institution awards degrees only to those students who have earned at least 25 percent of the credit hours required for the degree through instruction offered by that institution.

The Institution Certifies Compliance: Yes

Compliance report completed by: Audit Team 26

Statement of Rationale for Judgment of Compliance:

The University of Memphis requires that a minimum of 25% of the credit hours applied to degree requirements must be earned at the UofM. [1]

Students' transcripts are examined by graduation analysts in each college or school during a "check out" process. Included in this review is a determination that 25% of the credit hours earned have been earned at UofM.

Students with deficiencies are informed during a graduation check out appointment. The transcripts are examined again during graduation certification to make certain that each student has satisfied the 25% credit-hour requirement.

Students can also access a degree audit on-line, which displays both the courses that have been completed and those that remain for the declared major. [2]  Included in the degree audit is a statement that informs students when they have successfully completed 25% of the credit hours for their degree at the UofM.


Relevant Organizational Unit(s):
