Graduating in October or December of 2015? Don't Forget Your Application for Degree
If you anticipate graduating from your undergraduate degree or certificate program in October or December, please complete an online graduation application through Banner Self-Service by Wednesday, September 30. Your advisor will complete a graduation audit once he or she receives your application. The audit confirms that you have met the minimum overall GPA of 2.0, the minimum number of credit hours for the degree, specific course requirements of the degree, and that your transfer courses are congruent with our transfer policy. Students who have previously applied for graduation must complete the application through Banner-Self Service even if a graduation audit has already been completed.
Please be sure to turn in your tuition reimbursement forms to your employer for the fall term! You can find your registration information in Banner Self Service. Please contact your employer for additional details on tuition forms and deadlines. If you have any questions about your registration, please contact Lana Kelly Hilliard, Community Outreach Coordinator.

Study Tip of the Month
Don't try to do all your studying the night before the test. Instead space out your studying, review class materials at least several times a week, focusing on one topic at a time.
Reflect and Connect
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"- Nelson Mandela
Take time to think about all the importance of education and pat yourself on the back for getting another step closer to your goals.
