Final notes.

1. You must be enrolled in at least one hour in the semester that you graduate. Factor that in to your plan. If you plan to graduate this semester, you need to be enrolled in a class.

2. The Grad Catalog says that once you start your thesis you need to remain enrolled each fall and spring until it is finished. The rule is strictly enforced. Michelle Stout in the Graduate Office monitors this rule.



Have a great final semester and please take note of the graduation deadlines as you work through the process.
