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.

AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellows Program
The 2016 application is now available online!
The AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellows Program places science, engineering, and mathematics students at media organizations nationwide. Fellows have worked as reporters, editors, researchers, and production assistants at media outlets that include the Los Angeles Times, WIRED, National Public Radio, National Geographic Society, and Scientific American.
The AAAS Fellows use their academic training in the sciences as they research, write and report today's headlines, while sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to the public. The Fellowship experience broadens the fellow’s career path while increasing the public’s understanding of science and technology.
