Remember to do the following PRIOR to your last semester:
Apply for graduation one semester before your intended graduation date at the College of Business Advising Office (487 SSB). Don't wait until the last minute! When you do, you risk complications in your graduation.
Schedule an advising appointment for a graduation review the semester prior to the semester in which you intend to graduate (i.e., schedule in September for a May graduation, and in February for an August or December graduation). A comprehensive review of all graduation requirements is included during this appointment. This cannot be done on a walk-in basis! Stop by the College of Business Advising Office in 487 SSB to schedule an appointment or call (314) 516-5888 or log in to MyGateway, go to the Academic Planning Tools (bottom box, far right) and click “Schedule an Advising Appointment.”
Register with Career Services located at 278 Millennium Student Center. It’s the best way to stay in the loop regarding campus recruiting and job fairs. They can also help you get started on your job search. There is no fee for registration! Call 314-516-5111 or visit: http://careers.umsl.edu
Go to http://mydegree.umsl.edu to check your Degree Audit Report (DARS) after you preregister for your last semester! Or, you can run it online from your MyGateway account. Go to My Academic Toolbox (middle box, far right) and click on “My DARS Report.” If it says “All requirements complete – in progress courses used” you know you are almost at the finish line!
Remember to do the following during your FINAL semester:
Register and take the assessment test/major field exam (MGMT 4220: Business Assessment Test). It is taken on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory grade format and is required for an undergraduate degree.
Check the graduation list posted outside the Advising Office (487 SSB) to verify your major(s), emphasis area(s), minor(s), if applicable, and Latin Honors (requires 56 graded hours at UMSL). Your name will not be posted on this list if you invoked FERPA.
Register to participate in the commencement ceremony at the UMSL Bookstore (209 MSC) by April 1st (for May and August) and November 1st (for December) to make sure your name is listed in the program. More information on the commencement ceremony is available at: http://www.umsl.edu/commencement/ .
- FOR AUGUST GRADUATES ONLY – You have the option to take part in the May or December commencement ceremony. On your graduation application, please indicate which ceremony you plan to attend. If it is the May ceremony, you must apply to graduate by April 1st in order to be listed in the May commencement program.
Complete a grade modification form with an academic advisor for any courses you have repeated in which you received a grade of C- or lower. (Remember, the lower grade is removed from your campus GPA only, not your business, emphasis area, or major GPA.) Once your degree is posted on your transcript, you cannot use grade modification.
