Stu:Hi, I'd like to drop of my graduation form;
I understand you need this in order to process my diploma.
Pro:Ok, I will take that.
Before you leave, let's me check our computer.
Looks like you are OK for graduation,
and actually, I am getting a warning fly on your academic record here.
Pro:Yeah. Let's see was what.
Are you familiar with your graduation requirements?
Stu:Yes, I think so.
Pro:Then you know you need 48 credits in your major field to graduate and at least 24 credits in the intermediate level or higher.
教授:那么你就知道你需要专业内的 48 个学分以及中等及更高水平课程的至少 24 个学分。
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 issue letters before students' final year began to let them know what they needed to take in the final year to be OK,
but we don't do that anymore.
Stu:I definitely met with my chair person 2 years ago;
he told me that I need 8 more courses at the intermediate level or higher in the last 2 years to be OK.
他告诉我说我在接下来的2年里需要上 8 个中等或以上水平的课程。
So I am not sure what the problem is,
I make sure I got these credits.
Pro:Unfortunately, the computer is usually pretty reliable;
I am not sure what was going on here.
Stu:It could be that I have taken 2 basic courses but couple both of them with a few experiences.
学生:可能是我上了 2 个基础课程，但是这两个都带有相应的实习工作。
Pro:What do you mean?
Stu:I could only take intro courses because there were no intermediate level courses available for those particular topics.
My chair person told me that if I did the independent field researches in addition to the science work each course;
they would count as the intermediate level courses.
My classmates, some of my classmates, did this for an easy way to meet their intermediate course requirement,
but I did it to get the kind of depth in those topics was going for.
As I turned out I was really enjoy the field work, which I supplement just sitting and listening the lectures.
Pro:I am sure that's true,
but the computer still showing the miss basic level courses despite the field work.
Stu:I am not sure what to do then, I mean, should I cancel my graduation party?
Pro:No, no reason to get worry like that, just contact your chair person immediately, ok,
tell him to call me as soon as possible so that we can verify your field work arrangement and certify these credits right away.
It's not only there is an actual deadline to date you anything.
But if more than a few weeks go by, we might have a real problem that would difficult to fix in time for you to graduate.
In fact, there probably would be nothing we could do.
Stu:I will get on that.
