Seniors, are you looking forward to this day?

Welcome to your Senior Year! You have completed 95 percent of your academic credits. We want to make sure that everything is in place so you can graduate as you expect and move on to your next endeavor. Now is the time for you to double-check with your Academic Advisor and your Degree Audit Worksheet (accessible via MyhornetWeb) to make sure that you are ready to graduate.

Senior year is often the busiest year, but also the most rewarding as students are completing their academic major requirements, tasting the working world via internships and student teaching as well as applying to graduate schools or looking for a job. We would like to provide some guidelines that will help improve the graduation and graduate school process.  Please click on the provided links below.
