In our latest installment of this wildly popular feature, we’ll help you become a competitive applicant for jobs and/or grad schools. Did you know…that employers and grad schools are interested in your volunteer experiences (e.g., Golden House, Sexual Assault Center, etc.), even if you didn’t get paid or receive internship credit? Not only are you serving the community, but you’re also building your resume and helping to decide on future career paths.
Spring Graduates Should Apply for Graduation this Semester
Welcome to the second installment of our new feature designed to make you one of the best-informed students at UWGB. Did you know…there is an application process for graduation? A little more than a semester before you intend to graduate, you need to complete the on-line application to graduate within SIS. Doing so triggers the Registrar’s Office to conduct a degree audit to see if you have met/will meet by your graduation date all the requirements for graduation. It also probably gets you on the email distribution list that will receive important commencement information, including announcements about cap and gown, the senior resource fair, and so on. It’s important to do this early enough that you could actually be notified if you were missing a requirement before the Spring semester begins. If you are planning to graduate in May, you should apply for graduation after you register for Spring classes and by December 1st.
Welcome to our new feature where we share with you a small piece of information designed to help you in some area of your academic career. It won’t always be pleasant, and you won’t always like it, but we promise that our little facts are designed to help.
So, without further ado, Did you know… that most students applying to graduate school or doing a thorough job search report that the time commitment is equivalent to taking a 3-credit class? That means that you need to plan on having some significant extra time for that sort of thing during your last couple of semesters.
