The Human Resource Management Department of the School of Management and Labor Relations will determine whether students have sufficiently completed the requirements necessary to receive the HRM Minor at graduation. To facilitate this verification process, the School of Arts and Sciences provides SMLR with a list of HRM Minor students who have applied for graduation. Verification is done by SMLR via the Senior Review online system.
