GWSB Seniors: are you on track for graduation?
- Step #2: review your DegreeMAP worksheet ASAP to see if you are on track to complete all degree requirements. (click here for details)
- Step #4: refer to detailed information on GW’s Commencement Website here (schedule, tickets, regalia, etc.)
Step #1: submit your Application for Graduation on time!
- Before you apply, you must finalize your concentration(s) and minor(s).
Have you been meaning to declare a minor for years? View your unofficial transcript in GWeb to confirm what you have declared. If you have not declared your BBA concentration or would like to drop a concentration and/or minor, email your GWSB advisor with that request. If you have not declared your minor, submit a completed Minor Field Application to the Advising Center.
- Once you confirm that your unofficial transcript reflects the correct information, follow the steps below.
- complete the online Graduation Application by Wednesday, October 1, in order to avoid a late fee.
- if you complete your application by Friday, September 12, your GWSB advisor will review your academic record by September 19 (the end of the Fall 2014 add/drop period) and will notify you if any problems are identified with your fall schedule and completion of your degree requirements.
- you will be able to complete the online Graduation Application after you register for Spring 2015 courses in mid-November 2014.
- complete the online Graduation Application by Sunday, February 1, 2015, in order to avoid a late fee.
- if you complete your application by Monday, December 8, 2014, your GWSB advisor will review your academic record before February 6, 2015, (the end of the Spring 2015 add/drop period) and will notify you if any problems are identified with your spring schedule and completion of your degree requirements.
- you will be able to complete the online Graduation Application after you register for Summer 2015 courses.
- complete the online Graduation Application by March 15, 2015, if you plan to participate in the May Commencement activities or by July 1, 2015, in order to avoid a late fee.
Step #2: review your DegreeMAP worksheet ASAP to see if you are on track to complete all degree requirements.
– Degree requirements highlighted in Blue are classes “in progress”; this will include your Fall 2014 & Spring 2015 classes until final grades are posted, as well as any classes that are missing final grades from previous semesters. If you have missing grades or Incompletes, you should contact your professor ASAP to resolve your grade.
– Degree requirements highlighted in Red are classes that still need to be completed in order for you to graduate (ie – in Spring 2015 if you are planning to graduate in May 2015). Make a list of the requirements in Red: will you be able to complete all of them in one semester (ie – is the total 18 credits or less)? Have you completed all pre-req’s for remaining classes? (Refer to the Bulletin for pre-req info.) If you think that something highlighted in Red is incorrect, refer to Recommendation #3 below.
Scroll down to the end of your Worksheet. Any classes (past or present) that do not fulfill degree requirements will be listed in a category called “Fallthrough Courses,” which appears just below the School of Business Electives. If you have questions about anything listed in Fallthrough, refer to Recommendation #3 below.
If your abroad credits have been applied to your GW record, they will be listed in your DegreeMAP worksheet. If you don’t see them, you should have received information from the Office for Study Abroad about possible missing course approvals or transcripts. If you have questions about abroad credits, contact the Advising Center to set up an appointment with a GWSB Study Abroad advisor; review of abroad credit situations will NOT be available during Express Advising or via email.
Step #3: when in doubt, schedule an appointment with your GWSB advisor!
Completion of degree requirements is your responsibility as a student, and the Advising Team is here to serve as a resource if you have questions about those requirements. Advising is NOT available via email, but we would be glad to talk with you in person during a scheduled appointment. Not sure who your advisor is? Refer to our staff listing. Scheduling an appointment is easy: stop by the Advising Center in Duques 456 or call 202.994.7027.
