Students graduating in the spring of 2020 need to start preparing now, according to the Office of the Registrar at the University of Connecticut.
By now, fourth-year students should have checked the Academic Requirements Report and have declared all major(s) and minor(s). According to the registrar’s office, this should be done in a student’s junior year.
Now, students in their seventh semester graduating in May should apply for graduation in Student Admin, as well as submit their final plan of study for each major and minor they have declared. While encouraged to be done now, students have until the deadline of the fourth week of their final semester to do so.
In their final semester, the registrar’s office says students should ensure there are no outstanding balances or issues on Student Admin, verify the spelling of their names and mailing addresses for their diplomas and purchase their cap, gown and commencement tickets from the bookstore in March.
Seventh-semester marketing major Maddie Sanzo said she is focusing on what’s to come in life after UConn.
“In terms of the job hunt, I go on Indeed and Handshake once a week and star companies and postings I’m really interested in, and then when I have more time I sit down and do the applications and cover letters,” Sanzo said. “I am just trying to enjoy the time I have with my friends and having fun. I don’t want to spend senior year being super stressed…I’m not going to spend the best year of college worrying everyday.”
