During your third year (or before) you should meet with a career counselor in the Career Resource Center and your academic adviser to discuss options for the future (graduate school, work, or both).
Graduation Application Process
Once you submit your graduation application, your name is placed on the list for the upcoming commencement. Two months before graduation Records & Registration reviews your application. If your progress report shows deficiencies in collegewide requirements (e.g., total credits, liberal arts credits, upper division credits), or a problem in your major or minor, Records sends you an email that details the deficiencies.
The deficiency email is a courtesy and Records will not look at your application again until after all grades are in for that semester. This gives you time to resolve any problems. For example, there may be credits you can transfer in; study abroad credits you are waiting on; or workflows that can be done.
