Timeline: May Graduation
Checklist for Prospective May 2020 Graduates
Students should know that any delay in major or minor certification, posting of grades, or meeting any other graduation obligation may result in a delay of graduation. In that case, the student would be graduated in the next cycle (August/December/May).
- If you DID NOT receive an email from the College Office on January TBD, 2020 acknowledging that you are scheduled to graduate in May 2020, contact Shannon Fioravanti.
- Check your official worksheet on Penn InTouch to ensure that you have fulfilled, or will fulfill, all requirements, including major requirements, by the end of spring semester, 2020. If you have questions or need your official worksheet updated, see an advisor in the College Office (walk-in hours are Monday-Friday from 12 to 4 p.m.). Please note that the major and minor portions of the worksheet must be updated by advisors in the relevant department or program, not in the College Office.
- Confirm that the major(s) and minor(s) you intend to complete are on your worksheet as well as on your transcript. Major(s) or minor(s) that you no longer intend to complete should be removed – a College Office advisor can do so on your worksheet, but in order to have a major or minor removed from your transcript, you must go to the relevant department or program office.
- Notify your major advisor of your intention to graduate in May 2020 and discuss any outstanding issues with them. Departments and programs will certify majors in early spring.
