Tips for graduation application:  Many graduation applications are turned back by the department chair because they are incomplete. It is imperative that you specify which catalogue you are using for your major requirements. Moreover, once you pick a catalogue, make sure that the classes you have selected are the same as the courses offered in that particular catalogue.
