As you navigate through your last academic year, review the appropriate tab below for useful tips and advice.


  • Plan an internship or research experience now. Experience outside the classroom is critical for your future career and academic paths. Begin your internship search with the Life Design Lab. Begin your research search with your faculty advisor, department director of undergraduate studies, or any faculty member with whom you have a great relationship.
  • Review your junior clearance feedback. By August, read the feedback in Degree Audit Communicator thoroughly. It will tell you the specific requirements that you must complete to graduate. You are responsible for completing all graduation requirements. Your participation in commencement may be hindered if you not complete or follow up on junior clearance feedback.


  • Declare all majors and minors. If a major or minor does not appear on your unofficial transcript, it is not declared.
  • Review your degree audit periodically throughout the year. Make sure all your remaining requirements are in progress, study abroad credits have been posted to your record, and any exceptions have been entered by the director of undergraduate studies for your department(s).
