Thanks for the tip. So how do I do that the right way though? I always hear of people doing that, but do I type up something saying he and I spoke on the 27th regarding my degree conferment as listed on my app and have him sign it?
Email should be fine. Make it conversational. Something like "Thanks for taking the time to discuss my degree with me. I will be taking the following steps to ensure that I do in fact receive the degree.
Step 1, 2, 3, etc.
I expect to have this cleared up by X date. I will let you know as soon as this task is complete. Thank you."
