REMINDER: University Policy Change

As most of you know by now, the fee policy for late undergraduate graduation applications has recently changed. As of now, applications to graduate in May 2016 are late and the fee to apply is $50. Beginning January 1, that fee doubles to $100, then it increases from there. All deadlines and associated fees can be seen here.

____________________________________________________

REMINDER: Our office will be closed December 24-January 3rd. Any changes to spring schedules that change the number of HONORS hours or which HONORS courses you are enrolled in, you must notify your respective Honors Advisor.
