  12. A check in the Must Approve Graduation check box indicates the advisor or committee must make a degree check before completion of the student's graduation process. The Graduation Approved check box then becomes available for entry. Both check boxes are for information purposes only.
  13. A check in the Graduation Approved check box indicates the advisor or committee has made a degree check and the student's graduation process can now be completed. The check box is only available for entry when the Must Approve Graduation check box is selected.
