Are you graduating already?
Here's a slightly modified version of the junior checklist (just in case you haven't bookmarked our Kresge advising pages!):
- Double-check that you will meet your graduation requirements. (Can't read the Academic Advisement Report? See a Kresge adviser.)
- Connect with the Career Center to explore job and graduate school options.
- Take advantage of undergraduate research opportunities within your major or division: it's not too late!
- Learn about honors opportunities on campus and beyond.
- Continue thinking about letters of recommendation from your faculty mentors and advisers. If you haven't connected with any faculty, start attending office hours regularly.
In addition to taking advantage of the resources and preparation above, you will need to do one or two more things:
Apply to graduate on my.ucsc.edu in the quarter you will finish your degree requirements (do so in the first four weeks of the quarter).
If you want to participate in the Kresge commencement ceremony in June, apply at the beginning of spring quarter.
If you want to extend your enrollment beyond your EGT, you'll need to see a Kresge adviser. Your extension may require approval from the provost, so please be aware that the process could take up to a week (in other words, don't wait until the last minute). First year students are automatically given four years plus one quarter (13 quarters), and junior transfers have two years plus one quarter (7 quarters) to complete their degrees. Check your EGT (Expected Graduation Term) on the student portal to be sure about yours.
